For the cake:
– 3 ripe bananas
– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 2 large eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup buttermilk
For the topping:
– 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Step 1: Prepare the cake batter
Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a loaf pan.
In a medium bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Fold in the mashed bananas.
Step 2: Prepare the topping
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, and chopped walnuts until well combined.
Step 3: Bake the cake
Pour the cake batter into the prepared loaf pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Drizzle the topping mixture over the batter, spreading it evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
