Banana and Walnut cake

Hello Friends ...
Back with another recipe...Banana and walnut cake . I tried this recipe with a variation by adding coffee powder in it...If you like coffee taste then you add it otherwise you can skip it :-)


  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 ripe bananas 
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp coffee powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter


  • Preheat oven at 170 degree c for 10 min. 
  • Sieve maida, baking powder, baking soda, coffee powder, salt all together and keep it aside.

  • Whisk eggs and sugar together nicely with hand blender.
  • Mash bananas, melted butter together.
  • Blend banana mixture with the egg mixture til it gets smooth.

  • Now add all the dry ingredients with the help of spoon. Keep blending side by side to avoid lump formation.
  • Add vanilla extract in the mixture. Blend it nicely.
  • Sprinkle little flour on the walnuts (walnuts will not sink in the batter) then add them into the batter and mix well.
  • Grease the baking dish with butter and sprinkle little maida.
  • Pour the batter into the baking dish and keep the dish into preheated oven for 40-50 mins.

  • A wooden toothpick inserted into the cake should come out clean.
  • Take out the dish from the oven and keep it aside for 20 mins to cool down.

  • Cut it into small slices and enjoy with a cup of tea or milk.
