Here is an another easy soft banana cake that I would like to share with you today. It’s moist, soft and fluffy with the wonderful flavours of overly riped bananas and ground walnuts. The banana cake still stayed soft even after being chilled for three days and it’s definitely great for anytime of the day or when unexpected guests come knocking at your door.
