Banana, Walnut and Flaxseeds Cake.

Banana, Walnut and Flaxseeds Cake

Walnuts and flaxseeds are considered brain food, so this is an excellent choice for the kids……and don’t forget the nutrients in bananas…. I break the walnuts into really small pieces so that they dont find them :))

1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup butter, cubed
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 tbs flaxseeds

Mix the butter and sugar in a food processor until lightly fluffy. Gradually add the eggs. When combined, add the remaining ingredients except the walnuts and flaxseeds. When well combined, remove from the food processor and throw in the walnuts and flaxseeds. Mix. Pour the cake mixture into a greased cake tin and bake till a toothpick inserted in the cake, comes out clean. Serve at any time of the day 🙂
