Banana & Raisin Tea Bread

  • 75g melted unsaturated spread, plus a little extra for greasing
  • 150g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 75g wholemeal plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 75g brown sugar
  • 3 bananas
  • 100g seedless raisins
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

Full of Goodness

  • Rich in healthy vitamins & minerals
  • Good source of fibre
  • High in antioxidants

Bananas are great for your digestive system! They help aid digestion, stimulate the growth of friendly bacteria and because they are high in fibre they help keep your bowels healthy.

Banana & Raisin Tea Bread

1. Grease a 1kg loaf tin. Melt the spread in a small saucepan over a low heat. Stir the flours, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar, mashed bananas, melted spread, raisins and eggs and beat for 3 minutes until smooth.

2. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in a preheated oven, 180C (350F), Gas Mark 4 for 50 minutes - 1 hour until a skewer pierced through the centre comes out clean. Stand the tin on a wire rack to cool slightly before turning out.

3. The tea bread is much tastier if left to mellow for 2-3 days wrapped closely in foil. It can be served thinly sliced and spread with low fat soft cheese or made into sandwiches with thinly sliced apple or mashed banana.
