Walnut Banana Bread

Banana is one of my husband’s favorite fruit. But sometimes, He forgot to eat them, and banana got ripe very quickly. So I would use them to make smoothie or cake or bread.

This summer when we went back to my hometown, we brought so many walnut back. My mom just cracked them and store the shell-removed walnut in 2 large containers. My husband likes walnut, so he adds some in his yogurt. Yet, we still have a lot. So I tried to bake something with walnut and banana.


Bananas 2

butter 1/2 cup

white sugar 1 cup

eggs 2

vanilla 1/2 tsp

flour 1 cup

baking soda 1 tsp

salt 1/2 tsp

cinnamon powder 1/2 tsp

chopped & toasted walnut 1 cup


  1. Preheat oven to 170 Degree C.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together till light and fluffy.
  3. Add in 2 beaten eggs and vanilla. Stir well.
  4. Add in mashed bananas. Mix them together.
  5. Sieve in all the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder. Mix till combined.
  6. Butter spray the loaf pan. Dust it with flour.
  7. Pour all the batter into the pan.
  8. Into the oven for 50-60 mins. Check with a toothpick. If it comes out clean then it’s done.

Let it cool down for a little while.

Cut it and you will find it’s very moistened and firm.

Full of walnut and banana flavor. Very nice!

Banana Milkshake

My husband is 2 years older than me. But most time, I feel like I am the big sister when we stay together. It’s not difficult to guess what he likes and likes not. Just imagining will a kid like this or not, I will get the correct answer. I thought he would definitely like banana milkshake. Yet he told me it’s not like that. Because he had very terrible banana milkshake once and it was a nightmare.

Maybe I can make good banana milkshake that can change his opinion.


1 big ripe banana

1 cup milk

1 tbsp vanilla ice cream

1 tbsp honey

1/4 tsp cinnamon powder

2 ice cubes

Put all the ingredients above into blender. And blend till very smooth.

My husband loves it. He asks if there is anymore after he finishes 1 cup.

Easy Crepes


1 cup flour

1 1/2 cups milk

2 eggs

1 tsp vegetable oil (I used olive oil)

1/4 tsp salt

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk into smooth batter.

Heat a non-stick pan on stove with medium heat.

Add 1 big spoonful batter into pan. 

When the bottom turns a bit golden brown, it will be easily to flip over.

Heat the other side for a little while.

For the fillings, you can just spread hazelnut chocolate sauce. Then fold it and dust with icing sugar.

Or you can make cinnamon apple filling:

Melt 2 tsp butter in the pan. Add in 4 tsp brown sugar and 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon. Stir evenly. Add in some small apple pieces. Turn off the stove when apple pieces are coasted with sauce evenly.

You can also change apple to banana.

It tastes really nice.
