Kaipola/Banana Cake


Kaipola/Banana Cake


I come from the north side of kerala, which is called as Malabar. This area is very well known for its wide variety of snacks. Whenever I have plantains I am tempted to make Kaipola or Banana cake.


Kaipola is sweet combination of egg and banana. The best part is that the recipe is not only very tasty but very east to prepare.


It is often served for breakfast or relished as an evening snack. It is highly nutritious, rich in flavour and extremely yummy too. Off to the recipe…..
