Banana Loaf Cake

Hi everybody,

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.

INGREDIENTS

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

 

METHOD

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!
