Banana walnut cake in microwave

Banana walnut cake is quite good as the banana fruit gets along well with the walnut. I have tried banana nut cake using the conventional oven as it is how any cake is baked.

Today, I'm gonna share with you the recipe for baking banana walnut cake using a microwave. It just takes 5 minutes in the microwave to bake the cake. No need to wait for 30-40 minutes for baking the cake. This can be made as an evening snack for your kids after school. I'm sure they would love to have it.Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids that helps in brain development.


1 cup all purpose flour /maida
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup walnuts
1 ripe banana
1 tsp nutmeg powder (optional)
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup vegetable oil

How to make banana walnut cake in microwave:

1. In a bowl, sift together a cup of all purpose flour, salt and baking soda. Dry ingredients are ready.

2. In another bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla essence.

3. Add nutmeg powder and whisk again.

4. Then add two ripe banana and mash it well.

Now add half a cup vegetable oil and mix it well.

5. In a blender or stand mixer, blend together butter and sugar to a creamy mixture.

Tip: You can use a hand held electric blender. I have used a regular mixie to blend the butter and sugar.

6. To that add, egg banana mix and blend it again.

The mixture becomes little frothy because of the banana and egg.

7. Slowly pour in the blended mixture to dry ingredient bowl and fold it gently.

Tip: Do not over mix.

8. Add walnut and mix it gently.

9. Transfer the contents to a microwave bowl and cook in the microwave for 5 minutes.
I have used the same bowl, as it itself is a microwave safe.

10. Let it cool for 5 minutes.

11. Once it is cooled down, place the cake bowl upside down onto a plate. Tada! 5 minutes microwave cake is ready :)

12. Slice the banana nut cake and serve.

13. Cover the banana nut cake with a cling wrap so that it stays fresh for 2 days.

Note: Since it is microwaved, the banana nut cake has the tendency to become harder easily.

14. Enjoy the banana walnut cake with a cup of tea as your evening snack.
