Wholemeal Banana Loaf

This is such a yummy loaf & great for using up those squishy bananas no one is actually going to eat.
Cream 100g butter with 3/4 c of brown sugar.
Add an egg & 2 or 3 mashed bananas,
then 1/4 orange juice 1/2 c walnuts or sunflower seeds 
& a cup of wholemeal flour.
Sift in 1 cup of plain flour, & 1tsp each of baking powder & baking soda.
Mix until just combined.
Sometimes I add a little cinnamon or a tsp of pure vanilla essence & occasionally a couple of tbsps of plain yoghurt.
Bake at 180 degrees C for about an hour. 
Stand for 5mins before turning out of the tin. 




Now, the hole is from me testing to see if my loaf is ready! 
And the extra bits are because I overfilled the tin..what's new!
This is so moreish & jolly handy but won't
last long : )
Finally, should you decide to add sunflower seeds
instead of walnuts don't throw the whole thing out
thinking that it has gone off when you discover that
they have turned green in the cooked loaf
..they just seem to like to do that!

7/11/12 And just made this loaf again into two small tins.
I used plenty of sunflower seeds, some shredded coconut, dried cranberries & some prunes.
We all think it's the best version yet!
And the gluten free version:
Same as above but using 3/4 cup of coconut flour
3/4 cup of ground almonds
1/4 buckwheat flour
1/4 psyllium husks...a little more if not using an egg.
Make as above.
