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!!

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
