Banana Walnut Cake 核桃香蕉蛋糕

Banana Walnut Cake 核桃香蕉蛋糕





Recipe Source :  From Ann Yeoh of La Manila cake shop, the recipe was featured in Flavours Magazine 

I read somewhere that walnuts are good for the brain, retards the aging process and prolongs longevity. No matter whether it is truth or fiction, I just love to eat walnuts.

Bananas are a definite no-no for people who are on diet. Most people believe that they contain high calories. However, I was told by a practitioner of Chinese herbal medicine that bananas are very good for the pancreas and is believed to be able to prevent diabetes. Her advice is of course not backed by scientific research.

One thing  for sure which I can vouched for is bananas and walnuts go very well together. This cake is very delicious indeed!

150g sugar
3 eggs

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
