Eggless Banana - Semolina Cake

Today is the 7th and final day of the first round of blogging marathon #12. I was planning to post a banana bread but couldn't take the pictures because of the bad weather all week long here. I so, thought of posting this banana - semolina cake instead, that was inspired from this recipe. This post was lying in my drafts as I was not happy with these images but since I couldn't come up with a post today, I had to use it. :) I need to update the images the next time I try this.
The cake is absolutely delicious and this recipe is a keeper. Keep rotating different fruits whenever you prepare this cake so that you end up with a different flavored one each time. Though it appears to have a gritty, crisp surface from the image, it becomes softer at room temperature.  

Before going to today's recipe, here is a recap of my "Something Sweet" themed posts.
Day 1 - Carrot - Apple Muffins
Day 2 - Kesar Sandesh / Sondesh 
Day 3 - Chocolate Chip - Oatmeal Cookies 
Day 4 - Microwave Apple Crisp
Day 5 - Blackberry Cobbler
Day 6 - Dates - Coconut Kheer

1 cup semolina
1 cup banana puree
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp raisins
2 Tbsp walnut pieces
1 tsp baking powder

* Combine all the ingredients except walnuts in a bowl and keep aside covered for 10 minutes.
* Preheat the oven at 375 deg F.
* Grease a baking pan. This batter doesn't raise much and so the batter can be filled up to 3/4th of the pan. I used 2 one cup capacity baking pans.
* Pour the batter into the pan and sprinkle with walnut pieces. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean.
* Cool, slice and serve.

This goes to Raven's CEDD event guesthosted by me.
