Quick and easy. D declares it "the best thing I've ever eaten".
~Quick Fruit Loaf~
1 cup spelt flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup processed bran (any cereal like AllBran)
1 cup dried fruit (any sort, chopped if needed)
1/4 cup sugar
1 large banana, mashed**
enough milk to mix
Sift flour and baking powder together. Stir in bran, fruit and sugar.
Mix through banana and enough milk to bring it together into a muffin-mix consistency.
Pour into a loaf tin and bake in a moderate oven for about 25-30 min, or until a skewer comes clean. Eat warm or cool.
**I use frozen over-ripe bananas (defrosted) for cooking and these work very well - you can build up a stash of frozen black bananas over summer when they seem inevitable, then use them when needed. Freeze in their skins in a sealed container.
