a christmas banana loaf - Forever Nigella

... not quite sure where this one came from but it was those two very brown bananas staring at me from the bowl that inspired me to get busy... and at this time of year it's all mince pies and eggnog so I thought a little banana bread would shake it up a little... as you know, i'm a regular banana bread maker but for this one I turned to Nigella so I could enter this into the last ever Forever Nigella, hosted by the miniature muffin-sized Sarah from Maison Cupcake under the theme of Christmas Presence... which meant I needed to give it  Christmas twist... easily done with the addition of candied peel and dash or four of wonderful Glenmorangie whisky...  

Christmas Banana Loaf
this recipe (and method) is adapted from one I found in How To Be A Domestic Goddess and because i've adapted it I am showing you the recipe here...

8oz self raising flour
4oz butter
4oz brown sugar

In a large bowl, mix the above into breadcrumbs then add a teaspoon of cinnamon

2oz sultanas, 1 oz of candied peel and 2oz of pre-toasted almond slivers go in next
next mash 2 ripe bananas with 2 beaten eggs and a good glug of whisky and add these to the bowl and mix it all together.

Pour into a loaf tin and bake in the oven for 45 mins at 170c

eat and of course, enjoy! and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and all your loved ones xx
