Super Scrummy Banana Loaf

By popular demand, please find my Super Scrummy Banana Loaf recipe.  It is something I found in a magazine some time ago (I believe it may have been Sainsbury’s) but I cannot find it online, otherwise would post the link to original recipe here!  I think I have amended this recipe slightly from the original…

This loaf is not going to win any beauty parades, but it is a brilliantly flavoured, great tasting afternoon tea treat.  I would recommend with a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon or a small slice for a yummy breakfast.  It is moist, aromatic, and light; perfect any time day or night!

Drum roll please…
