Everyone loves a good banana loaf, so make a date with this classic.

This is also good toasted.



2 cups (300g) self raising flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

125g stoned dates, chopped

1/2 cup (115g) castor sugar

1 cup (250ml) milk

2 eggs

1 cup over ripe mashed banana



Preheat oven to 175C, gas 4.

Line a 2lb loaf tin.

Sift the flour, soda and nutmeg into a large bowl.

Stir in the dates and sugar.

Combine the milk, eggs and banana in a separate bowl, then fold (do not beat it) into the date mixtureuntil well combines.

Pour into the loaf tin.

Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.

Cool for in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool.
