Banana Walnut Cake

This is another favourite of mine :)
Bananas and walnuts make such a great combination, don't you agree?
I made this on Sunday afternoon, and by the next morning, it was all gone!

This recipe makes a soft and very moist cake.

1 egg
30g brown sugar
30g white sugar
1 tbs condensed milk
3 tbs yoghurt
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
90 ml oil
1 banana, mashed
125g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

20g walnuts, crushed and dusted with flour
3-4 tbs ground peanuts for topping

1 - Cream egg and sugars till light and creamy.
2 - Add condensed milk, yoghurt, vanilla essence, cinnamon and oil. Mix well.
3 - Add mashed bananas and mix well.
4 - Sift flour and baking powder into egg mixture and mix till just combined.
5 - Fold in walnuts.
6 - Pour into 6" square pan (greased and floured). Sprinkle peanuts on top of batter.

7 - Bake at 160 degC for about 30 min till a tester comes out clean.

How nice of you all to drop by :) It never fails to brighten up my day.

The peanut topping was an impromptu thing. I had some ground peanuts leftover and I thought I'd try using it as a topping rather than repeating the same walnut flavour. Thank goodness it worked out well :)

Thanks for your support :)

Hope we'll have a chance to exchange bakes in future. Saw your durian agar agar mooncake... I usually shy away from durian, but yours look so good, I'm tempted to try :)

*Thumbs up* for banana and walnut!!

Nel, the cake looks moist and with peanut topping, sure to add extra fragrant and taste, yummy!

Hi Jess,
I was surprised that the peanut topping turned out so well. I was initially afraid that it would clash with the walnut, but it added another dimension to the taste :) Give it a try next time!
