Banana Walnut Loaf

Normally my house is well stalked with bananas as we are regular banana eaters. So often it happens that the bananas go overripe and I have to think ways to put them to better use.

At such times various recipes of banana  cakes, shakes and other desserts made with banana come handy . This banana loaf is one such easy recipe where you can never go wrong.

I have made this cake so many times only with semolina and bananas and other variations too like using soya flour or adding buttermilk and still always got a moist and soft cake.

This time however I used wheat flour and crushed walnuts and that made the cake extra soft and yummy. The coconut also imparts a lovely flavor to the cake.

You will always find this recipe handy if wanting to put your ripe bananas to a good and healthy use.

Ingredients :

2 cups .....................wheat flour
1/2 cup...................semolina
1/2 cup....................sugar
3 .............................very ripe bananas
1/2 cup ...................freshly grated coconut
2 tbsp.....................melted unsalted butter
1 tsp.......................baking powder
1/4 tsp...................baking soda
3 tbsp....................crushed walnuts
3/4 cup................milk
1 tsp...................cardamom powder





Method :

Mash the bananas roughly .

Mix the flour, semolina and add all other items and mix well .

Keep aside for 1 hour .

Before keeping in the oven add baking powder and baking soda and again mix very well.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes .

Check by inserting a toothpick, If it comes out clean the loaf is done.
