Banana, date & walnut loaf

Ok, so not really a homage to the great Andy Warhol but I often think of this image when I think bananas! This recipe is one of those ones when you have too many bananas around that are getting a bit past their life, make this!

You will need...
  • 1 1/2 cups of self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup of wholemeal plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup of raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 30 mls of water
  • 1/2 cup of milk - soy milk if you prefer!
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup of chopped dates
  • 2 ripe bananas - up to 3 if they are small.
This loaf is baked in a loaf pan which will need to be lined and greased. Oven should be preheated to 180 degrees Celsius.

In a mixing bowl, puree the bananas with a fork. Add the other wet ingredients and combine. Add flours, sugar, cinnamon and with a hand mixer on medium speed, combine the ingredients until well mixed. With a spatula, fold the nuts and dates in and pour the mixture into the loaf pan.

Bake on 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 55 minutes to 1 hour. Test with a skewer in the middle, if it comes out clean - it's ready!

Cool on a wire tray. I like this loaf sliced thickly and spread with butter for morning tea!
