Sugar Free Banana Bread

Post them up and every so often I'll snaffle them and put them on the blog, if that's okay? It'll save you the trouble of emailing them to me. (It will mean you lose out on our charming personal interaction but I sense you can live with that.)

Sugar Free Banana Bread

All hail to my super baking friend for this scrummy recipe if she's reading this, hope you dont mind me sharing!

8oz Nana
3oz Raisins
4oz Flour
2oz butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp mixed spice

Rub in the butter & flour and spice. Add raisins. Whisk egg and mash in the nana. Fold the eggynana mixture into the dry mix. Bake @ 175 for an hour ish. Ta-da - dead easy

I usually replace a couple of ounces of banana with dried apricots and use nutmeg & cinnamon instead of mixed spice. Works really well.
:D

I made this today. It came out a bit like rock cakes. I used a standard round cake tin which was a bit big really for the cake mixture so my cake is a bit flat.

It also only needed 50 minutes cooking time - could probably have taken it out before then too.

What cake tin do you normally use SS?

Forgot to say, truly yummy! My first ever proper cake too :D :D

I've never made it into individual cakes tbh. I always use a small loaf tin its about 10inches by 5.

This was yummy last week so I'm going to improvise this week seeing as I have so many apples & pears. I've had apple cake before so reckon I could add these in small cubes...

I'll let you know whether it works!

I havent tried it with pears, I do make buns with cooking apples in a similar recipe which are yummy. My mum has tried it with both peaches and pineapple (!?) and both worked well apparently

The apples worked but I used a different tin so didn't cook it long enough! Seems a recipe easy to adapt.

I used plain and it was fine.

I've been making one every week with the bananas from my box. They are yummy!

Yes I use SR. I have started counting it as part of my 5 a day as there is a fair bit of fruit in and I eat it so often :oops: Handy recipe to have as we always buy bananas and then dont eat them!

Just made this and it's great! Piglet wolfed it (sorry, bit of cross-species mixing there). It only took 50 minutes though - possibly my oven's on the hot side.

Mae'r - I made it 8 oz peeled.
