Banana Coconut Cake

One more easy to make cake but with a few more ingredients than usual. If you have a banana that is over ripe & no one wants, you may want to try this delicious cake which makes you grab for more. Great tea time accompaniment or simply when you need to bite into something chunky when you are lazing in front of the TV.

Banana Coconut Cake
You Need:

  • Maida - 2 cups (250gms)
  • Eggs - 3
  • Sugar - 1 cup (175gms)
  • Butter - 1 cup (150gms)
  • Mashed bananas - 2 cups
  • Baking powder - 3/4th tsp
  • Walnuts chopped - 1 cup
  • Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
  • Orange juice - 1/2 cup
  • Cinnamon powder - 1tsp
Method:

Sift flour & baking powder thrice. Roll the walnuts in the flour so that they dont sink to the bottom of the cake

Beat butter & sugar till pale
Add one egg at a time & beat well and ensure no lumps are formed
Add the flour & walnuts and fold in. Add the cinnamon powder & mix well
Add the mashed bananas, orange juice and coconut milk & fold
Grease a 25cms round cake tin with butter & dust with a little flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and bake for 1hour 20mins or till the skewer comes clean

Note: The cake will have a thick crust which adds to its flavour
