Looking to make a fruit cake? I’m not sure you could get a fruitier loaf cake?! This has the base of a banana cake but then has the addition of apple, sultanas and cinnamon to transform it into an apple cake. A great way to use up the fruit bowl when things are past their best, and it couldn’t be easier to make. It’s dairy free too!
- 2 large/3 medium/4 small very ripe bananas, mashed
- 110g vegetable oil
- 60g caster sugar
- 170g self raising flour
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 50g sultanas
- 2 eating apples, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
Step 1: In a large bowl, mix the bananas, oil, sugar, flour, eggs and cinnamon together.
Step 2: Fold in the sultanas and apples.
Step 3: Pour into a lined 1lb loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven at 180c (fan) for 50 mins, or until golden, risen and springs back to the touch.
Step 6: Remove from the oven and allow to cool for half an hour before transferring (out of the tin) to a wire rack.
Store in an airtight container and it can
last a few days.
