When I decided that I was going to bake an eggless cake with fruits, this was the first thing that came to mind. I wanted to use those Tutti Frutti, Cranberries, raisins and nuts that was overflowing. We had almost two bananas that were begging for attension and I thought why not simply make a banana cake with fruits in it. Since the base is going to be with banana puree,and the fruits this will suit the theme perfectly!
The cake turned out to be little on the denser part, with banana flavour so strong. Hubby dear liked it a lot, while Konda didn't like so much banana coming out. So in the end, it was just me and hubby dear who feasted on this. Somehow others at home don't like so much of banana in their cakes.
