Today I have here a baking recipe.
After a really long time decided to bake a cake. I kept aside a bunch of bananas, patiently waited for them to get black. Mashed it, and added it to flour and other ingredients and yummm.
Its 10:46 at night so I will not go on. Over to the recipe then.
Mashed Banana – 1.5 cups (I used 4-5 small bananas and 1 large plantain that would be poovan payam and ethakka in malayalam)
Eggs – 2 (beaten)
Buttermilk – 1/3 cup
Oil – 1/2 cup (I used Sunflower Oil)
All Purpose Flour – 1 3/4 cups, sifted
Powdered Sugar – 1 ½ cups
Baking Soda – 1 tsp
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Walnuts – 1/2 cup, chopped to bits tossed in 2 tsp APF
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and grease a loaf pan. Whisk the mashed bananas, eggs, buttermilk, and oil. Sift the APF, sugar, soda, salt. Add the sifted flour to the liquid batter and mix till it is a smooth and slightly thick batter.
Add the walnuts to the batter, pour it into a greased loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes. Keep checking every ten minutes after that. When a tooth pick comes out clean, it is done.
Let it cool on rack completely before you cut them into desired sized slices.
