Banana Walnut Cake

It's said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. This is 200% true for this delicious recipe. This was given by my wonderful friend Rachana and has been an instant hit since then. After I left the US, my friends miss my banana cake more than they do me!

Ripe Bananas - 3
Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Flour 1 1/3 cups
Walnut pieces - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1/2 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Eggs - 2

1) Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees for a white uncoated pan and 350 degrees for a dark, coated pan.
2) Grease the cake pan.
3) Mash the bananas so that there are no lumps
4) Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the mashed bananas, beaten eggs, oil and mix well. With an electric mixer, mix on high for about 3 minutes.
5) Add the walnut pieces and mix well with a fork
6) Pour this mixture into the greased pan and bake for about 35 minutes or till the tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
