Banana Walnut Cake


I was trying to figure out what to do with the over-ripe bananas in my fridge yesterday.I kept looking for a recipe I liked but couldn’t really find one so I created my own. Something I did which I really liked (I found this on someone elses cake recipe) is instead of oiling and flouring the cake pan, I buttered and sugared the pan. The cake came out super easy and developed this delicious sweet crust on the outside.

Banana Walnut Cake

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 bananas
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 cup flour
1 cup walnuts
1 cup milk

1. Cream Butter and sugar together
2. Add banana, vanilla and eggs, mixing thouroughly
3. Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl
4. Alternately add milk and dry ingredients to banana mixture, mixing completely between each addition
5. Fold in walnuts
6. Butter and sugar a bundt type pan
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean

I made icing for the cake but I think you could use a cream cheese icing or even just dust with powdered sugar.

    I love the recipe, I am thinking maybe pecans or almonds in place of the walnuts, not a fan. Great idea for the pan giving the cake a bit of a crust almost. Thanks for the recipe and thanks for helping me use up some of my bananas that have been yelling at me to be something.
