480g wholemeal self-raising flour, sifted
110g brown sugar
300g sultanas or other finely chopped dried fruit
2 free range eggs, lightly beaten
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
Preheat oven to 180C/160C Fan. Grease and line a large 2lb/1kg loaf tin, mine measures 23cm x 11cm at the base. Combine the flour, sugar and dried fruit in a large bowl.
Combine the buttermilk, eggs, mashed banana and oil in a large jug. Pour into dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Spread the batter into your prepared loaf tin and bake for 1 to 1¼ hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool the loaf in the tin 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.
