This is a delicious cake with Indian flavours and very healthy as it does not require condensed milk or cream of any kind. It was very well received by my family and they were ready to eat stake cakes rather than throw them away! 
1 cup whole wheat flour (gehun-ka-atta)
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup oil
2 ripe bananas
¼ cup walnuts, chopped
1 pinch cardamom powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup milk
Cream the sugar and oil together. Sift the flour with baking powder and soda. Mix with the sugar and oil, cardamom powder and vanilla essence. Mash the bananas properly to form a puree and add to the batter. Add milk to achieve pouring consistency. Do not make the batter too thin. Add walnuts. Grease the cake pan and dust it. Pour the batter in it. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
Bake at 180C for 30-40 mins till a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cook in the pan before cutting and serving.
