Banana Walnut Cake

Super Soft, Moist fluffy Banana Walnut Cake.... This "NEVER FAIL" recipe was shared by a very dear friend.


1¼ cups Demerara sugar
1½ cups flour
1 large ripe banana, chopped into small pieces (should be about 1-1½ cups)
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup oil
100ml milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Baking Method: 

Grease baking tin. Line base with baking paper.
Add ¾ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon water to a saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook on high heat until the sugar turns dark red. Don't let it burn! - {despite the recipe's warning I have burnt it many times. So far so careful}.
Add the banana pieces, butter and vanilla and cook over low heat until the bananas break down into the caramel. Let the mixture cool completely.
Beat ½ cup sugar with eggs and oil until the sugar dissolves and the mixture turns pale.
Add the banana mixture and milk and beat well.
Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda.
Fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture. Add chopped walnuts, Give one final mix
Pour the mixture into the tin.
Bake at 160°C / 355°F for about 40 minutes or until the tooth pick comes clean.
