You’ll almost forget baking the cake in an air fryer as this Banana Walnut Cake is so moist and soft. Except, unlike traditional baking, the cake is ready a fraction of the time!
If you like banana bread, you’ll love this version created with almost all the same items but tastes so much better! Deliciously moist and flavorful!
The Banana Walnut Cake is the ideal blend of flavors; I used walnuts today, but you may use any nuts.
Why Would You Want to Try This Recipe?
This cake will become one of your favorites, as light and fluffy as classic banana bread. You get all of the sweet tastes because it includes overripe bananas and crunchy due to sliced walnuts.
While the cake bakes, the Air Fryer does a fantastic job of keeping it moist. Making this cake a delicious and ideal sweet treat for the whole family.
Is it Good to Add Too Many Bananas to This Cake?
It’s all about the proportions of making a delicious banana walnut cake. Adding too many overripe bananas to your cake will result in dense cake due to the density of bananas by nature.
As a result, only 3 should be added to this recipe. A light and fluffy cake will result.
What Can I Do With The Rest Of My Bananas That Have Been Overripe?
You can generally freeze the overripe bananas that are not used for later use. Mixing them into shakes, baking banana nut bread, or making quick chocolate banana cake are terrific ways to use them.
Just keep in mind to unpeel the bananas before putting them in the freezer.
Is it Essential That I Always Use Walnuts in This Recipe?
While I used walnuts today, you can use any nuts you choose in this recipe. Pecans, macadamia nuts, and an effortless blend of all nuts are among my favorites.
Use your favorite; the only thing I would recommend is crushing or dicing them first.
