Baking cakes holds a very special place in my heart...I just love it...there is an excitement in the whole process...be it the art of folding the mixture, holding the old age superstition not to look at the cake otherwise it will not rise..haah! or the delicious smell of baking .
The other day I tried this delicious banana walnut cake..the sterling combination of bananas and walnuts makes it simply divine.
