Though I bake everyday, it has been ages since I posted anything new on my blog. Last year saw lots of changes in my life and somehow I lost the drive to type and type and post. I had to close down my website due to maintenance issues. Got back to blogger platform. And then yesterday I received a message on fb messenger. Someone had bookmarked my website and naturally she could not find it anymore. She asked me if I was still baking. Yes, I am always baking but had somehow lost the will to post them. Her sweet words made me realise that there are people out there who love my recipes and are looking forward to them. It was a great lift-me-up. So now I am back to posting and I will really try to be regular about it.
Starting off the new year with a Banana cake. A rich one too!! And of course a yumm one!
2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup choco chips
1 cup walnuts, roasted and pounded ( should resemble pebble shape)
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 medium sized ripe bananas, mashed
2/3 cup yogurt
1 tbsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Line and grease a loaf tin.
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Add the choco chips and pounded walnuts and mix well.
Beat together sugar and oil for 2 minutes. Add one egg at a time and keep beating well till the batter looks pale and fluffy. Add the mashed bananas and beat. Add the yogurt and vanilla essence and beat well again. Fold in the flour mix. Pour the batter into the loaf tin. Bake for 40 minutes.
