1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sugar

Spread the walnuts in a pan and toast  in the oven for 5 to 8 minutes,or until fragrant;let cool.







2. In a medium bowl,whisk the flour with the baking soda,cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, combine the sugar,eggs and oil and beat at high speed until light colored and creamy. Add the mashed bananas and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in dry ingredients until throughly blended.



Fold in the nuts.


Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the middle of the oven for 50 to 55 minutes,or until the top is springy and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
