Again I am irregular in my blog postings, want to do at least 3 posts per week, but I am hardly doing two, something or the other comes up and the blog takes a back seat. I had made this Banana Streusel Cake, almost a month back, as usual had a bunch of overripe bananas and wanted to do something with it, other than the banana bread. Streusel Cake had always been on the do list, I love the crunchy and crumbly topping on the cake, we can have any type of cake for the base, since I had bananas lying around, I decided to do a Banana Streusel Cake..
Need To Have
- Whole Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
- All Purpose Flour - 1/2 cup
- Baking Soda - 1/2 teaspoon
- Baking Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
- Chia Seeds Powder - 1 tablespoon
- Unsalted Butter - 2 tablespoons
- Vegetable Oil - 2 tablespoons
- Sugar - 1/2 cup
- Vanilla Extract - 1/2 teaspoon
- Bananas - 2 medium sized, mashed
- Chopped Walnuts - 1/4 cup
- Milk - 4 tablespoons
- Salt - 1/8 teaspoon
For The Topping
- All Purpose Flour - 2 tablespoons
- Butter - 1 tablespoon
- Sugar - 2 tablespoons
- Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
- Brown Sugar - 2 tablespoons
- Walnuts - 2 tablespoons, chopped
Soak the chia seeds powder in 3 tablespoons of water and leave it for 10 minutes. Take the oil, butter, soaked chia seeds, mashed bananas, sugar, vanilla extract, salt and milk, mix them well. Sift both the flours, baking soda and baking powder. Add it to the wet ingredients and mix it well.
Add the walnuts dusted with some flour and mix.
Now take all the ingredients for the topping and mix it up as shown in the picture.
Pour the cake batter in a greased pan, spread the streusel topping and bake it at 180 C for about 40 minutes. Remove, cool and slice.
Usually I sift the walnuts along with the flour, it'll be dusted well with the flour and then I add it.
You can line the pan with parchment paper, it'll be easy to remove the cake.
