Banana Walnut cake with choco chips

Banana Walnut cake is one of Yash’s favorite. Found this interesting recipe online where buttermilk is used  and to my surprise the cake turned out really moist and juicy. I decided to throw in some choco chips to entice Anya to eat it and it worked wonders. 

As I was taking pictures of the cake for the blog, I noticed a small finger on the cake in my viewfinder. You can see the sequence of pics here and you will realise how much Anya loved this cake.
