Easy Steps To Banana Walnut Cake For Two

BAKING MODE IS ON TODAY....

Before I changed my mind, I quickly took out my butter to thaw in room temperature.  I have been contemplating for the last few days whether to do or not to do, the mood must be there, right?  LOL.. My bananas have been sitting in my kitchen for the last couple of days, not totally black yet, still half half and if I don't do the baking today, they will end up in the dustbin tomorrow.  More or less, it is because of the over-riped bananas that I have to bake just now....

Firstly, the ingredients..... 
110gm butter
65gm sugar (I used only 50gm brown sugar)
2 eggs
100gm self raising floor
30gm crushed walnuts (another few to decorate on top)

Cream butter and sugar....
Then add in one egg at a time....
Lastly, add in the mashed banana, 
followed by flour and the crushed walnuts...
And the rest is for decoration on top... 
Into the oven it goes at 180 celsius... for 40 minutes...
Tested with the skewer when it was done.... 
And it turned out like this...
Not sure why cracked...
Can anyone tell me?
Is it because I did not "shake" the cake properly before it went in the oven?
I was so worried that it was dried...
Quickly cut and check.....
Hey, it is SOFT!!!
No dryness at all...
Just and moist....
In fact very nice!
Crusty a bit on top and soft inside!
Other than the "earthquake cracks"... 
I am happy with the outcome of this mini sized cake...
OK, next time I will do a double portion...
Minus the cracks if someone were to tell me why!
LOL....

  6. I always loved walnuts and would buy them in China & Korea. I would munch them directly into my mouth like kachang. To bake them with your banana cake is a marvelous idea! I like.

    The cracks on the cake makes it look sexy!!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
