Moist Banana Cake

This is a very moist and buttery kind of cake. An excellent treat for evening tea or morning breakfast. Well, extra fat and sugar will definitely require you to spend more hours in gym to burn those stubborn fat but it's okay, when taken in moderation or once in a blue moon. Enjoy!
