Banana Walnut Cake


I am not really into baking cakes and sugary foods, but I was really wanting to use my ripe bananas and experiment baking cake from scratch, since its not really my forte! After looking around I thought of baking this super delicious, moist and soft Banana Walnut Cake. This recipe is very easy to follow with a few quick steps. I have reduced the sugar as the ripe bananas were already very sweet. I had finished almost half of the loaf as soon as it came out of the oven. I have attempted this recipe while I was visiting my parents in philadelphia last summer and they loved it! Hope you like this cake as much as I do!!


3 very ripe bananas (mashed)

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup soft butter

3 large eggs

½ cup sour cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups of all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

½ cup chopped walnuts

½ cup walnut halves (for decorating on top-optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour your cake pan

In a large mixing bowl, add soft butter, vanilla, banannas and sugar. Mix at low speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and sour cream together. Mix all the ingredients until smooth.

In a separate bowel, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer on low, blend dry ingredients into batter alternately with banana mixture. Stir in the chopped walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle some walnuts on top and bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, turn out onto a cooling rack, and cool completely.

Its ready to serve !

P.S. Frosting is optional.
