The red skin variety of banana has pale orange color pulp and is very sweet in taste.
Batter for the cake
Method: Peel the banana and slice it into small pieces. Grind together the banana slices, sugar, yogurt and oil in a blender. Keep it aside.
Add the baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, salt and cinnamon to both the flour in a big vessel. Sift all the dry ingredients together for at least twice.
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients little by little. Mix with light hands, folding the flour mix gently into the wet ingredients.
Crush the walnuts into small chunks and add it to the batter.
In the oven it goes
Preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 180°C. Grease a rectangular tin or a round cake tin with oil and dust it with dry lour. Pour the batter into the baking tin. Bake the cake at 180°C for 30 to 35 minutes or till the cake is done. Check the cake by inserting a knife in it, if the knife comes out clean the cake is fully balked.
I like slightly crisp and brown crust for my cakes and baked it for extra 10 minutes to get the above look.
Moist and scrumptious
The Walnut & banana cake is very moist and slightly dense since it has wholewheat in it.
Upside down beauty
The banana delicacy from upside down.
Walnuts peeping out
The walnuts in every bite gives a crunchy and scrumptious taste to this cake. You can frost this cake with Castor sugar and butter and then serve.

I admire the patience and perfection shown on each and every post of theirs.
