  • 225g self-raising flour

  • 150g caster sugar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 175g mixed dried fruit

  • 2 eggs

  • 100g butter

  • 450g banana peeled and mashed


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Mix all the ingredients except the dried fruit together. You can do this in a food processor or by hand in a mixing bowl.
  3. When the ingredients are all thoroughly combined, fold in the dried fruit.
  4. Spoon the batter mixture into a 1kg/2lb non-stick loaf tin, spread it out evenly and bake it for 1.5 hours.
    (NB Oven temperatures vary so the banana bread may not need the full 1.5 hours to cook through. Check the progress of the banana bread regularly to make sure it is not burning. If the top of the loaf is browning too quickly, but a skewer inserted into the centre does not come out clean, cover the loaf with aluminium foil and continue cooking until a skewer pushed into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.)
  5. When the banana bread has risen, golden-brown on top and cooked through, remove it from the oven and set aside to cool on a wire rack.
  6. Slice before serving.
