The below recipe can be used for preparing muffins also. Just substitute the normal baking tin for cake with muffin tray. Simple!
250 gms (about 2 cups) all-purpose flour (maida)
1 cup almonds or walnuts (roasted and shredded) (you can adjust the quantity as per your need)
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup (about 150 gm) unsalted butter (melted and of room temperature)
2 eggs (whipped)
1) Take two separate bowls. In one bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, sugar and nuts.
2) In another bowl, mix in mashed bananas, vanilla extract, melted butter and eggs. Whisk the mixture well to make a smooth batter. Then gently pour this wet mixture into the dry one, combine well till batter becomes thick. Please remember what I mentioned above, don’t over mix. Over mixing hampers perforation and resultantly, the cake would turn out tight and springy.
3) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 degree F). Grease a baking tin with a spoonful of butter and pour the batter into it. Position the tray in the middle of the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
