I haven't done any baking for ages and at 6am this morning suddenly got an urge to get the Kitchen Aid out. I'd bought some dates in the hope of trying a sticky toffee pudding - but it never happened. So rather than them languishing in the cupboard I decided to use them in this wonderful sticky moist loaf. Needless to say I always have over ripe banana's in my fruitbowl too.
I'm eating a slice now and it is really delicious - give this one a go!!
130g stones dates, chopped
2 ripe Banana's, mashed
1 TBSP Golden Syrup
90 unsalted butter
90 Soft Brown sugar
2 TBSP Milk
280g Plain Four
1 TSP Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Sea Salt
1/2 TSP Cinnamon
Step 1: Preheat oven to 190c. Add dates, banana's and syrup to large bowl and mix
Step 2: Cream butter and sugar then add eggs and milk. Sift in flour, baking powder, salt and Cinnamon and mix thoroughly
Step 3: Mix creamed mixture into banana and dates and then spoon into a 20cm loaf tin (buttered) and bake for 60 minutes.
