Banana Walnut Tea Cake

I made this a while back, but never got the time to post. A really simple and homely banana & walnut cake. We had slices of cake for tea, with a little cream cheese frosting and fresh strawberries.
Banana & Walnut Tea Cake
3 large bananas, mashed
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1 t vanilla
1 egg
90g brown sugar
180g whole wheat + cake flour
2 t ground cinnamon
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
3/4 C toasted walnuts, chopped

Combine mashed bananas, egg, butter, vanilla and sugar. Sift dry ingredients. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Fold in walnuts and bake at 375F for 35 min.


  1. Sounds so simple and good- a great brunch item.

  2. I love that you kept it so simple! I'd pick up that cake and eat the whole thing!!!

  3. That looks so comforting! Yum!

  4. hi, how much is a stick of butter? From NZ so not too sure how much to add.

    love your blog by the way!
