• Banana-4 no.s
  • Atta (Wheat Flour)-250 gms
  • Castor Sugar- 250 gms
  • Eggs-2 no.s
  • Butter- 100 gms
  • Chocolate Chips ( optional) – as much as you’d like, I like to put in a handful :P)
  • Walnuts – 10-15 no.s
  • Golden Syrup- A generous dribble (optional)
  • Baking Soda- ½ tsp
  • (Tip: Use salted butter! Salt gives loafs and breads a unique flavor and does not let it become too sweet.So in place of salt,I just use salted butter,it serves the purpose.


  • STEP 1
    Take a large bowl.Peel and mash the bananas. Slowly fold in the castor sugar while continuously stirring it into the mashed banana mixture.
  • STEP 2
    Break the eggs and add into the mixture, one by one, stirring continuously. Whisk the mixture until the eggs are mixed in smoothly.
  • STEP 3
    Add the baking soda.
  • STEP 4
    Add the butter into the mixture. Mix well. Remember to use soft butter so it folds well and results in a smooth mixture.
  • STEP 5
    Add the wheat flour slowly little by little, constantly stirring the batter.
  • STEP 6
    Line the dish you want to use to bake your cake with butter. You could also use butter paper. Pour the batter into a baking friendly cake dish/ loaf pan directly or on the butter paper lined dish.
  • STEP 7
    Add walnuts, chocolates chips and golden syrup. Stir the mixture.
  • STEP 8
    Place in an oven or microwave (convection setting) at 180 degrees C for 55 minutes. After 55 minutes insert a fork straight into the cake/loaf and see if it comes out smoothly. You could also look at the color of your cake to decide if it needs to stay inside for a little while longer)
  • STEP 9
    Tip: If you like your loaf/cake to be a golden brown stick to 55 minutes. If you like it like I do, moist on the inside and dark brown and mildly crusty on the outside, 60 minutes is what I’d suggest.
  • STEP 10
    Note: Don’t worry if you don’t get it right the first time around. And if it turns out alright, don’t forget to click some photos 
