Banana coffee walnut cake

walnut banana coffee cake 1You can never have enough of chocolate cakes and similarly you can never get tired of banana cakes . Just like there are fudgy, muddy, chiffon, devil’s and many more types of chocolate cake,  a banana cake (or should I call it bread?) also has enviable variations. I have posted two already, an eggless choco banana  cake and a banana quick bread with eggs. This time pairing it with  coffee and walnuts, and who will say no to this classic combination. Ripe black skinned bananas in the pantry is every baker’s delight. We have generous people around who heartily share their banana crop with us, and with the mercury rising, you don’t have to wait much for them to blacken.walnut banana coffee cake 4
