baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon
salt – 1/4 teaspoon
cinnamon powder – 1 teaspoon
eggs – 2 nos

The recipe says to use a bread loaf pan. But I dint have one. So i used my square cake tin. The baking time differs when the tin is changed. Butter and dust the tin on the bottom and sides of the tin and keep aside
I baked in my Indesrit cooking range gas oven. So there is no temperature setting.
To pre-heat switch it on and keep the flame in medium flame (which is between maximum flame and minimum flame). If it is an electronic oven. Set the temperature to 180 deg Celsius.
1. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nuts.
2. In another bowl mash the bananas. Add lightly beaten eggs, melted butter, and vanilla.
3. With a spatula and lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just
4. Do it slowly until combined. the Batter will be thick
5. Transfer the batter into prepared pan.
6. Bake until bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
7. For me the cake was done in 30 minutes.
The cooking time differs based upon the oven and tin you use. in the case of an electronic oven, it takes approximate an hour or less in a bread loaf tin. Well once the bread is done the whole house will get the aroma of the freshly baked cake.
Serve warm. I prepared this in the night and had this for breakfast.
It tastes as nice as a cake.
To toast the walnuts
1. Place the nuts on a baking sheet in a baking tin or pan
2. Bake for about 10 minutes
3. Allow to cool and then chop coarsely.
