Chocolate Banana Cake

I do a lot of baking with bananas since that is the most common fruit at home and if it's about to go waste, I bake something with it. This is one such bake. Bananas and chocolate goes very well together and if you add some cinnamon and walnut to the mix, it just becomes too delicious!
