Moist Banana Cake

Normally, my blog is incomplete without some insights on the weather! How would I not mention about it, when I am totally in love with it!

Evenings are the best, since the nights are getting longer. This weekend, we had some mild showers. On Friday, it drizzled just for 10 minutes while on Saturday, we got some awesome rains after sunset. I was out with the kids buying stuff for the house and enjoyed the drive in the showers. Talking about the shopping, HD has given me an ultimatum to stop purchasing anymore. I keep saying that I am not buying anything more than what is required, and I am making it a point to use all the stuff at home but still, it is not good enough to convince him! Hehe… Especially when it comes to buying stuff for the kitchen… hmm…


Today I am sharing with you a nice moist banana cake, one of the best that I have baked. I have baked this a couple of times with all purpose flour. This time for the blog, I made it with a mix of all purpose and wholewheat flour and loved it even more! This is one of the best cakes to go with an awesome cup of tea for breakfast. Nicely spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and mildly sweet, you cannot stop with one piece, I guarantee you that…Β Recipe adapted from here
