Banana Bread


8oz self raising flour
4oz butter
5 oz caster sugar
1 lb bananas
½ teaspoon of salt
2 eggs
6oz mixed dried fruit


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
2. Mix all the ingredients except the dried fruit together. You can do this in a food processor or by hand in a basin.
3. When they’re all thoroughly mixed, add the dried fruit. Spoon the mixture into a 1kg/2lb non-stick loaf tin, spread it out evenly and bake it for one and a half hours. The loaf is done when a skewer pushed into its middle comes out clean.
4. Cool on a wire rack, then slice before serving.


This is an ideal recipe when you’ve bought too many bananas and they’ve started to go a bit brown.  Enjoy.
