Banana Walnut Bread

Banana and of my favourite combo in a cake. This is another yummy cake baked for gathering with friends during the long Singapore Jubilee weekend. 

This is a very simple loaf cake. It's basically a mix wet ingredients to dry ingredients cake and involves minimal washing.

Not only is this cake packed with flavour and fragrance, it is also great on 'crunch' with the addition of walnuts.

  1. Hi LY,
    Yes agree banana + walnut is a perfect match. Wish I could have a slice for my brekkie.

  2. Hi LY,

    Every slice of your banana bread looks very moist and yummy :D


  3. Banana and walnuts are such a classic combination! This would be a perfect addition to the tea I am drinking right now!

  4. Hi! Is nutmeg powder a must?

    1. Hi Daphne, it's not a must though it will enhance the flavour of the cake. You can choose to leave it out.

  5. Banana cake is always the all time favourite.
