I baked this for sunday breakfast. My husband is not too fond of bananas. To be precise, he pretends to be allergic to the smell of them (yeah, I always thinks he pretends that bit). I made this & he was delighted with the cake & gaves me a "thumbs up" for the same. After he had finished ....I revealed to him the truth that this was a Banana cake..........the reaction.......Oh, it was not bad at all!!!

Well, here goes the recipe -

Ing -
3/4 cup atta
1-1/4 cup maida
2 mashed ripe bananas
a handful of walnuts & raisins
1/2 cup ghee / butter
1/4 cup - brown sugar
3/4 - sugar
2 - eggs
1 tsp - baking powder
1 tsp - baking soda
1/2 tsp - salt

Method -
Beat the ghee & the sugars together till creamy
Add the eggs one by one & beat well.
Sieve the flours, baking powder, baking soda & salt together
Add this flour into the egg mixture slowly beating on one side with the ladel
I pureed the bananas & added them in the end, mixing well with the ladel
Add the walnut & raisins in the end & mix well.
Preheat oven to 160 C, & bake for about 45-50 mins, till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

It tasted very good & vanished before I could click some of it. I have two more bananas left & I plan to bake it tonight. Hope I get some pics this time.

I generally use butter but ghee must be adding to the flavour.

Pooja - I use ghee mostly because of its free availability. White butter is generally avlbl only at the doodh vallas shops!!!

Rajitha - Me too loved it.
