Method

1. Banana bread or banana cake can be made in an oven or OTG or even in a kadai at home.

2. To prepare the banana walnut bread batter we first add peeled bananas to a mixer grinder along with sugar, curd, oil and vanilla extract. Make sure to keep aside ½ a banana to garnish the top of the bread later. Blend it to a smooth puree and keep aside.

3. In a bowl sift together through a sieve flour, baking powder, baking sode and cinnamon powder. Now gradually add the banana puree to the dry ingredients and mix them till there are no lumps. Fold in walnuts as well.
Line the baking tin with butter paper and pour the batter in to the mould. Do not tap down the batter as it will spread on its own. Slice ½ the banana and place them on top of the batter. Garnish with some more walnuts on top.

BAKING IN AN OVEN OR OTG

4. Preheat the oven or OTG at 180c for 15mins. Place the tin and bake the banana bread/cake for approx 55-60mins or more if it is still under cooked. To check simply insert a long toothpick of a thin knife in the centre of the cake and if it comes out clean then cake is ready.

In case it comes out wet then bake for some more time till it is cooked. In case it is getting a darker shade of colour on top and the batter is still undercooked then simply cover the top of the cake with a shoot of butter paper.

5. Once the banana bread is ready remove from the oven and let it sit for 3-4mins outside. Now hold the butter paper and lift the bread out and place it on a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled slice and serve.

BAKING IN A KADAI (NO OVEN RECIPE)

6. Heat a large kadai and add 1kg regular salt to it. Heat it for 10 mins on high heat. Place a katori or ring on the salt and then place the cake tin with batter. Cover it with another place on top and lower the heat to medium. Make sure that the cake tin does not touch the salt at any time.

Bake it for approx an hour or till it is fully cooked. To check simply insert a long toothpick of a thin knife in the centre of the cake and if it comes out clean then cake is ready. In case it comes out wet then bake for some more time till it is cooked.

7. Once the banana bread is ready remove from the oven and let it sit for 3-4mins outside. Now hold the butter paper and lift the bread out and place it on a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cooled slice and serve.
