Banana Cashew Cake (wheat flour & amp)

Bananas are the most prevalent fruits in all seasons and always we tend to face a problem of over ripe bananas hanging on the stand in the kitchen.There are many ways to finish of those bananas,some of which I have tried it out like Steamed banana cakeBanana fritters , Ban-Man Smoothie , Fruit Halwa.Though  banana cake is frequently made,but I always tend to forget a click of it and now is the time that I got this opportunity.Moreover,I added wheat flour as the base,you can use all purpose flour too.Those of the kids reluctant to have bananas will definitely love it!!

Wheat flour 1cup
banana 2 ripe (1 cup when blended)
lemon juice 2tsp
sugar 1 cup
butter 3/4 stick softened (100g)
eggs -2
baking soda - 3/4tsp
vanilla extract 1tsp
cashews - 1/3 cup
salt~ a pinch

  • Sift the flour and add salt.
  • Blend the bananas and add the lemon juice to it.
  • Beat the eggs in a blender,add the butter and add sugar.
  • Add in the vanilla extract and cashews, baking soda and mix well.
  • Pre heat oven to 300 degrees F and pour half of the cake mix batter into it ,add the cashewnuts.
  • Add the remaining batter and top it up with cashews.
  • Place it in the oven and bake for 50- 60minutes or till the tooth pick comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire rack and slice into pieces,serve  as a healthy snack!!!!
Servings ~ 1 cake

Wishing all a Happy weekend  !!!!!
