Preparation time : 15 mins

Serves : 6

1 cup Whole wheat flour
2 Bananas riped
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Cinnamon powder
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 cup Oil
1/4 cup Walnut chopped

*If you don’t have buttermilk, do not worry you can easily make at home. Take 1 cup of warm milk and add 1 tbsp of vinegar or lime juice, stir and keep for few mins and it is ready to use.

Method :

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

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.
