Banana bread with a difference! This tasty take on the standard recipe with the addition of SunGold kiwis really livens up the taste buds. Packed full of vitamin C, kiwis are the ultimate superfood and compliment the bananas perfectly.
Serves: Makes 1 loaf tin
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 35-40 minutes
You will need:
2 SunGold kiwis
2 medium very ripe bananas
110g butter, softened
170g caster sugar
2 large eggs
225g self-raising flour
Chocolate, roughly chopped (optional)
1 tablespoon demerara sugar
What to do:
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
Grease and line a loaf tin.
Peel one of the SunGold kiwis and mash in a bowl along with the two bananas and set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
One by one, mix in each egg, stirring carefully to make sure it is well incorporated.
Mix in the flour until stirred through. If using, here is where you would add your chunks of chocolate.
Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and sprinkle over the demerara sugar.
Slice the remaining SunGold kiwi and arrange across the top of the cake.
Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until cooked through and golden.
