Banana and raisin loaf


I have not added a recipe onto my blog for a while, so thought I would show this loaf I made. For some reason we either seem to run out of bananas or we have too many that they start going black, I really don't like them when they go soft, and no-one in the house does either! So I hunted around the internet and made a combination of several recipes to suit the ingredients I had in the cupboard.

Banana & Raisin Loaf
4 oz Marg
4 oz Sugar (can add some dark) – beat together
Add:
2 eggs
Then add
3 or 4 bananas (could leave one for end so less mashed)
Sift and fold in
8oz SR Flour
½ tsp Bicarb
1 tspn Cinammon
5 oz Raisins

180 C for 45 minutes

The first time I made it I didn't taste them as I decided to put them out for sale on the market - the first time I have done that without first tasting. It was quite a stressful experience, so I have reade them and they were delicious. I like to warm up a slice in the microwave.

I am still on the look out for any fabby traybake recipes, that would be ideal to cut up and put on the Country Markets stall. By doing a variety I can hold back a few cakes for Owen's lucnhbox, rather than having one big cake to eat all week.
