# Cream [[butter]] and [[granulated sugar|sugar]]; beat in [[egg]]s one at a time.

Combine first four listed ingredients.  
# Fold in mashed [[bananas]] and [[flour]] sifted with soda and [[nutmeg]].
+
Put walnuts in a blender and crush, then add to the flour mixture.
# Add [[cashew]] nuts.
+
Take the remaining ingredients and blend for ~25 seconds for a smooth consistency. Pour this over the flour mixture and mix together.
# Bake about 50 minutes in lined, greased cake tin.
+
This batter can make two round 9" pans, butter them and pour mixture in.
 
+
Place in oven at 350 degrees F for ~32 minutes, then let cool on cake rack.
=== Meringue ===
 
# Beat [[egg]] whites, add [[granulated sugar|sugar]] and [[rum]] gradually and continue beating until mixture holds a peak.
 
 
 
== Zosha's notes ==
 
Skip the "lining", just [[butter]] and [[flour]]. Generally a cake tin would mean an 8" round cake pan. You could make it in a loaf pan as well.
 
 
 
The meringue is obviously part of the cake, but it doesn't say what you are supposed to do with it. I suspect that it is one of those things you are supposed to know. So here is my guess. Spread the meringue after the cake has cooked and cooled and bake a little while longer.
