Cinnamon Banana Cake

I recently bought too many bananas at the market and being a person who doesn’t like over-ripe bananas, I just left it sitting in the fruit bowl while I opted for the not-so-ripe ones. I love bananas as long as they are NOT mushy! K thought I was wasting fruit so I decided to make something out of it… Banana Fritters was my first thought but I decided to bake a cake – its been ages since I made one … So banana cake it was for afternoon tea

Super easy to put this together, you just need to have the patience to wait for 45mins or so to come out and then man it is AMAZING!

I love the crunch of the nuts, and the melted chocolate chips is just amazing … If you don’t like cinnamon, the flavour doesn’t come out strong

Definitely an easy cake that you can whip up real fast and folks will be extremely impressed and will want to eat more than a slice! 🙂
