Banana date loaf
I found this recipe on Taste.com, there recipes are amazing and they always work. I love Banana, so this one has that bit of extra zing. Happy cooking! :)
Ingredients (serves 12)
2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ground nutmeg
125g pitted dates, chopped
1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar
1 cup (250ml) milk
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 large)
Butter, to serve (optional)
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 24 x 13.5cm loaf pan with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and nutmeg into a large bowl. Stir through the dates and sugar.
Combine the milk, eggs and banana in a separate bowl. Fold into the date mixture until well combined. Pour into the pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve with the butter if desired.
