I need to make this cake definitely, not only I really like banana and walnut, the main reason was I bought a big pack of banana from the sale shelf. :p  Silly am I?

Anyway,  banana was good for our health, they’re low in saturated fat, sodium, no cholesterol and very high in dietary fiber, vitamin B6 and C, also high in potassium as well. But it contains lots of fruit sugar, so be careful if you have diabetes problem, eat less please.

And the walnut, it has no cholesterol, very low in sodium and sugar, and rich source of energy , contain lots of health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins, high in manganese content, it also benefit for our brain,  7 nuts has only 183 calories. Eating just as much as 25 g each day provides about 90% of RDI (recommended daily intake) of omega-3 fatty acids.

That’s why I always love to add fruits into my cake recipes, and it make the cake more moist and soft.
