Crushed Banana Cake

This recipe is from one of the best cookbooks I have, it's from my personal collection and the lady that lovingly wrote down every single recipe is from my neck of the woods to make this cookbook extra special to me. I have no idea how old it is but from the pics it's resonable to say it's VERY OLD:)
Ps I wrote the recipe EXACTLY as written in the book

Crushed Banana Cake
1/2 C butter
1 C banana pulp (lol)
1 3/4 C sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 Tbsp sour milk
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
Cream the butter, add sugar , then cream again, add the well beaten eggs and the cup of ripe banana pulp that had been ruffed through a sieve. Disslove the soda in the sour milk and beat into the mixture, and lastily add the flour sifted with the salt, add the baking powder. Beat well then add the chopped walnuts and bake in a pan in a moderate oven 15-20 min.

Vintage Cookbooks are for everyone who has ever wanted to bake something special and turned to a modern cookbook and realized they never seem to have all the ingredients at the same time, there're for history lovers that want to feel connected to the past in a way that's missing in history books, there're for the people that love that musty old book smell and laugh at kindle's, they're for people that feel like we as a society have gone a little too far, a tad off course with life and want to get back to the simple and the real, and they're for the people that want to pay homage to all the grandma's and great aunts that did it best!
