Banana, Carrot and Seed Bread

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 1–1¼ hours

Makes: 1 loaf

Freezable

INGREDIENTS

  • 150g / 5oz softened unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200g/ 7oz ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
  • 125g / 4½oz grated carrot
  • 25g / 1oz sultanas
  • 125g / 4½oz soft dark brown sugar
  • 225g / 8oz self-raising flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 25g / 1oz pumpkin seeds
  • 25g / 1oz sunflower seeds
  • Butter, for spreading and greasing

Topping:

  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • Icing sugar, for dusting (optional)

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 170°C/340°F/Gas 3, grease a 900 g/2 lb loaf tin and line it with baking parchment.

Place all of the ingredients, except the topping, in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together with an electric hand-held whisk for 1–2 minutes until light and fluffy. Alternatively, use a stand mixer fitted with the paddle or whisk attachment.

Spoon the mixture into the tin and level out the top.

Sprinkle with the extra seeds and bake for 1–1¼ hours until golden, well risen and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack, then remove from the tin. Dust with icing sugar (if using), cut into slices, spread with butter and serve.
