Cherry Banana Cake


Summer vacation coming to an end , my daughter is looking forward to get back to school, meet her friends ! But there is no end to the raising temperature and humidity in Delhi. Its difficult for kids to be playing more of indoor games . She is constantly asking me every now and then, “ma, what’s for snack in the evening ” or another question would be “what’s for breakfast tomorrow ” 🙂 Funny but true, more than lunch and dinner she enjoys her breakfast and evening snack time the most.

These days market is flooded with stone fruits and cherries are something I cannot resist not buying. Banana and cherry is bit of unusual combination but I bet the sweetness from banana and sourness of cherry makes its really delicious.



2 medium size ripe bananas
¼ cup plain yogurt
¾ c light brown sugar
2 tbsp white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup chopped fresh cherries
2 tbsp flour
¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional, I did not use them)


Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.
Peel and mash the bananas.
Stir in the egg,yogurt, brown sugar ,white sugar and vanilla , mix until well combined.
Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Do not overmix.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Toss cherries with two tablespoons of flour and fold into batter.
Grease your loaf tin or bundt pan and pour the mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Serve warm with chocolate sauce or without is also just yum.


Hope you will enjoy baking as much as I enjoyed. Thank you for stopping by and do share your feedback.
