Jyothi Madanlal January 28 at 9:40am
I adapted the recipe fromhttp://www.cookingandme.com/2011/01/best-banana-cake-recipe-ever-with-cream.html

Ingredients:
1 cup wheat flour
2 large ripe bananas mashed
3/4 cup powdered jaggery
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts dusted with flour to prevent them from sinking in the cake(did not have these that day)
1/4 cup oil/melted butter
1 egg
A pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence/extract
Milk - as needed to get the correct batter consistency

How i made it:
Prepare baking tin - line with butter paper or spread butter and dust with flour.
Preheat oven at 180 degree C
Mix together all the dry ingredients - wheat flour/baking powder/baking soda/salt.
Whisk together the banana/butter/jaggery/egg. Add the vanilla essence.
Fold in dry ingredients into the wet. Add the walnuts
Pour into the cake tin and bake for 30-40 minutes.

Milk will be required if the consistency is too lumpy/thick
