Banana Date Loaf

banana date loaf


  • · 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • · 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • · 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • · 125g pitted dates, chopped
  • · 1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar
  • · 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • · 2 eggs
  • · 1 cup mashed banana (about 2 large)
  • Butter, to serve (optional)

How to make

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 24 x 13.5cm loaf pan with non-stick baking paper. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and nutmeg into a large bowl. Stir through the dates and sugar.

Combine the milk, eggs and banana in a separate bowl. Fold into the date mixture until well combined. Pour into the pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve with the butter if desired.
