What do you do when there are over ripe bananas on your kitchen counter and have kids at home who give 'eww' kind of expressions looking at the blackening bananas? I would have made milk shake and would have been done with those bananas immediately. But I was faced with some stubborn resistance and so I took the longer route to get rid of those 'black, stinky' (words used by the kids) bananas :)

Also I had some candied fruit which I felt was not even close to the tutti frutti we get back home in India. But nevertheless the candied fruit enhanced the taste of this bread/cake. To my delight the cake was very much liked by the kids without any adverse comments. I was happy that my older one didn't 'smell' the bananas and gladly dug into her share of the cake!!!

Banana Tutti Frutti Cake

Ingredients - 

Whole wheat flour 1 cup
Maida 1 cup
Corn starch 2 Tbsp
Baking Powder 2 tsp

Bananas 2 medium sized
Oil 1/4 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup
Milk 1 cup
Apple cider vinegar 1 Tbsp

Tutti frutti 1/2 cup
Raisins 2 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation - 

Preheat the oven to 350 F and keep a 7 X 3 X 2 1/2  loaf pan ready either by greasing it or lining it with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the flours, baking powder and set aside 2 tablespoons of flour.

Roll the tutti frutti and raisins in the 2 tablespoons of flour set aside.

Blend the bananas, oil, sugar, milk and apple cider to make about 2 cups of liquid.

Mix the flours and the wet ingredients so there are no lumps.

Fold in the flour rolled tutti frutti into the batter.  

Transfer the batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle some tutti frutti on the top and place it in the center rack of the preheated oven.

Bake for about 50-55 min until the tester inserted comes out clean. I took out mine at 57 min.

Let it cool in the pan for 10 min and run a knife through the edges to loosen the cake and carefully remove it from the pan onto a wire rack for further cooling.

Slice upon cooling and devour!
