Banana Loaf Cake
I’ve finally given in to the call of lock down bingo and made banana bread.
I have jazzed mine up slightly, to make use of things expiring in my cupboards. This is always the way, I usually end up creating a recipe to make use of things I have in stock.
225g self-raising flour
60g soft brown sugar
75ml rapeseed/vegetable oil
3 squishy bananas
50g coconut, ground
75g dates, chopped
A splash of water
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. mixed spice
2 tsp. baking powder
Mix the dry ingredients – flour, spices, coconut, and baking powder – in a bowl.
Add the chopped dates to a pan with some water and heat up until it forms a paste.
Mash the bananas together, then add to the dates and add the oil.
Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
Add to a lined and/or greased loaf tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes at 180 degrees or until a skewer comes out clean.
Cool (if you can contain yourself) then eat!
