Cherry and Banana Loaf

Who's on:

♬'Adele 21' By Adele 

Day 2 of my Christmas detox just went down hill after making use of over ripe bananas! I started off well with yoga, a healthy lunch, swimming and after all that I probably burnt off 2 mince pies.

For a tea time snack this cake is so cute and truly scrumptious.

Recipe for small loaf (about 8 slices)


50g soft butter
2 medium eggs
20g raisins
100g caster sugar
6 fresh pitted cherries (glacé would be ideal)
200g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 over ripe bananas


Preheat oven 200°c

: Grease and line the loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
Whisk butter and sugar until combined.
: Then add the two eggs and 2 bananas.
: Sieve in the flour and baking powder.
: Add the cherries and raisins.
: Stir everything and pour thick batter into the loaf tin.
: Cut last banana vertically from top to bottom and put on top of the batter.
Bake for 45 minutes until well risen and bananas brown, drizzle honey all over and serve when tea is ready.
