- 1 cup mashed bananas, use 2-3 over-ripe bananas
- 1 cup maida or all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup milk powder
- 3/4 cup powdered or icing sugar
- 3/4 cup cream
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
- 2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- Butter for greasing loaf pan
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
- In a food processor beat all the ingredients for 4-5 minutes on medium speed.
Pause from time to time to scrape the dough off the sides of the processor jar/bowl, so the batter is uniform.
The batter should be light and fluffy, but not like whipped cream.
Take care not to over-whip it.
- Pour the batter into a greased rectangular 9-inch loaf pan.
A square or round pan will work as well.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes.
Check the cake by inserting a toothpick. If it comes out clean, take the cake out of the oven.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Optionally, can serve with freshly cut bananas or whipped cream.
