Moist Cinnamon Walnut Banana Cake

I love walnut and banana, the combination of the two is simply irresistible to me. This banana and walnut cake recipe was pinned from Cuisine Paradise. It stands out from the rest due to its rich and moist texture.


The secret lies in brown sugar, which has the taste of molasses, sweeter and richer as compared to white sugar. To make it suit more to our taste, I added cinnamon and chocolate chips. The cake is super moist and delicious. It smells heavenly during baking. It has become our "family cake".
