It's been more than two months of lockdown in India and things are slowly becoming normal expect the number of rising Covid19 cases. Like all others, I also wish if there was a reset button for 2020. It's kind of roller-coaster ride for us, human beings. The fun part of the lockdown is that we are mastering our cooking skills. I always thought I can't bake a cake for xyz reasons. But this time, I thought will give it a try (after watching so many videos and bugging my baker friends with silly questions). The result was goey, spongy, chocolatey goodness fresh from the oven. So here is the recipe, do try it and let me know the feedback.
Banana - 4 nos (small size)/ 2 big over riped
All purpose flour (Maida) - 1.5 cups
Walnut - 1/4 - 1/2 cup (roughly chopped)
