Step by step pictorial instructions to make banana walnut cake:

In a mixing bowl add the banana and mash them with fork or you can use electric beater.

In the banana mixture add buttermilk, sugar, oil, vanilla extract and mix well.

In a mixing bowl sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder for twice and mix well.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and gently fold to make a smooth batter.

Add the flour coated walnut into the batter and give a quick stir. Do not over mix the batter.

Grease a cake pan with oil and preheat oven @180° for 10 mins.

Pour the batter into the greased pan and tap 2-3 times to release the air bubbles inside.

Garnish with chopped walnut and banana slices and bake @180° for 35-40 mins until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove the cake from oven and let it cool down. Invert and slice after the cake is cooled down completely.
