Recently many of my friends have been posting on Banana cake and coffee cake. I always wanted to make one. Also a dear friend of mine had requested for this recipe in Facebook. So its my turn now 🙂

As always I tried with whole wheat flour. Though it was not so very moist and the look was quite not appealing I would say 😦 I got a bit upset by looking at it when I took it out of the oven. To my surprise the taste was awesome and my hubby is munching pieces often 😛 I am now happy with the outcome 😀


Dry Ingredients

Whole Wheat Flour : 1 1/2 cup

Salt : 1/4 teaspoon

Nutmeg Powder : 1/4 teaspoon

Cardamom Powder : 1/4 teaspoon

Cinnamon Powder : 1/4 teaspoon

Baking Powder : 1 teaspoon

Walnut : 1/4 cup (chopped)

Wet Ingredients

Banana : 3 (Fully ripen)

Egg : 1 (optional, I used it as I have so many in fridge :P)

Vanilla Extract : 1 teaspoon

Milk : 1/4 cup

Baking Dates : 1/2 cup or Sugar(Dark/White/Brown) : 1/2 cup ( I used Dates)

Oil : 1/4 cup ( I used olive oil)


Preheat oven to 350F and grease baking tray wit oil or butter.

Mix all dry ingredients together. Have few walnut to dress on top.

In a blender blend all wet ingredients to a fine semi watery paste. I got around 2 cups.

Now mix dry and wet together.

Pour batter in baking tray. Next drizzle the remaining walnut over them.

Bake for 35 mins or until tooth pick comes out clean.

Cool for 20 mins.

Sorry for the poor presentation friends 😛 I was not happy with the look , but taste is just wow and cardamom powder in this gave an excellent taste.
