I made Nici Wickes' banana bread. It is moist, sweet, slightly sticky and keeps well. It’s also dairy and egg-free, so it's vegan-friendly - and also great to use up all those bananas you have in the freezer!
Try serving with orange, butter and honey if you don't have dietary requirements
I found this quick and easy and only one saucepan need to create the cake batter.
- Ali xx
- 200 gram brown sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 1/4 cup plain flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2-3 large, ripe bananas, mashed well
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 200 gms of chopped Dates
- optional: softened butter, orange zest and honey, to serve
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a loaf tin.
Put the dates, brown sugar and water in a saucepan, then cook over low heat for 3-4 minutes. Bring to the boil for 2 minutes, then take off the heat. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Spoon into the prepared tin and smooth the surface with the back of the spoon, making a slight dip lengthwise in the middle so that when it rises, it will rise to flat.
Bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool for 5-10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
Serve in thick slices. I served with the orange butter and drizzle of Honey while it was still warm. So good!
Thanks Nici !
