This is an old recipe of mine that I've been making for years. It calls for walnuts but you could use other nuts such as almonds or hazelnuts, if you prefer. Tastes good on it's own or with lemon-cream cheese icing.
I have baked this cake a few times now as it is an all time favourite. I put the mixture into a Tray Bake Tin and find it bakes a lot quicker and is easier to cut into slices for coffee morning etc. - 18 Oct 2013
Made this with two overripe bananas I had not eaten. Cut down on the sugar to 125 grams and 200 grams of flour. Divided it in half before adding the bananas as my wife is allergic to them, so made hers with the walnuts only. Taste was very good especially with the walnuts added to the bananas. Had friends around next day who really enjoyed it. Might try it with cream cheese/marscapone mix on top next time. Well done Tom. - 10 May 2018
The recipe says 9*17.5cm tin, the closest I have is a a small loaf tin. Having used it I found the baking took longer. I think this recipe needs a 9 inch cake tin - 11 Dec 2017
