I have quite some time did not bake a butter cake. Since I have overripe bananas sitting on the island top, perfect to make a banana cake. But I also wish to have some bite of nuts in this cake. So I added some pine nuts (leftover from earlier Basmati Rice with Pomegranate Seeds and Pine nuts ). And I love this combination!
Usually I prefer to use pisang emas (banana) for making banana cake as this banana has sweeten flavour which we could use less sugar in the recipe.
