Christina Kaoh doesn’t let her graduate studies at Harvard get in the way of cooking. She developed this recipe for the birthday of a friend.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture, until no lumps remain. Fold in raisins and walnuts.
