Makes one loaf and cuts into 10 generous slices
Per slice it has 360 calories, 16.5g fat, 6.5g saturated fat, 22g sugars
Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 1 to 11⁄4 hours
2 Whizz the walnuts in a processor until very finely processed. Break the bananas into chunks, add to the processor and blend again until mashed.
3 Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, adding the bran from the wholemeal flour left in the sieve to the bowl. Don't be tempted to skip this step as it makes sure the baking powder is evenly distributed! Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the Light at Heart - Brown.
4 Add the banana and walnut purée mix and enough milk (you may not need the full 250mls) to make a soft
dropping consistency. Pour the mix into the prepared tin and bake for 1 to 11⁄4 hours until well risen and firm to touch (check after an hour and cover with greaseproof paper if browning too much). Remove from
the oven and leave to cool for about 15 minutes before removing from the tin. Then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
5 Beat all the cream cheese frosting ingredients together using a wooden spoon. Swirl the frosting on top of
the loaf. Get the kids involved: Ask your children to help mix the frosting and spread on top of the banana bread.
