Banana Walnut Cake


With abundant bananas on hand, and some left over toasted walnuts from my Walnut Pie, I decided to bake a banana walnut cake. As the amount of banana was quite a lot, the cake has a full banana taste! It was really tasty and sweet! My colleagues love the banana cake and could tell immediately from its smell and look that it's banana!

Hi Jane,
How are you? Glad to see your baking! I don't have Alex Goh recipe book so thanks for sharing this recipe. My mum don't like my banana loaf as she don't likes those pound cake texture. If this is kind of fluffy texture one I must give it a try as she likes fluffy one. Thanks Jane!

Hi Grace,
Actually, I like those pound cake kind. Heehee...But this banana cake is soft and airy. Do try it. However, I think you can reduce a bit of the oil. I found that the oil is bit too much. Though it created a light and moist cake. :p

Who can get tired of banana recipes? These 2 deserts looks perfect. ;) Have not tried banana walnut pie before...but have tasted it. I remember there was a layer of chocolate at the base of the pie when I bite into it. Do share your pie recipe when you have the time...would like to try it out. ;)

Hi HBS and Reese,
Wow! I've not tried banana walnut pie before! I'm sure it will taste really yummy! Unfortunately ladies, I can't share the walnut pie recipe as it was given to me by my sister. Sorry about disappointing both of you, hope you understand. If I can share any recipe, I definitely will.

Banana cake is one of my all time favourite cake. It great that you've loaded it up with bananas- I bet your kitchen smells like heaven when you were baking.
