Banana and walnut bread

Banana & walnut bread
This easy-to-make bread is a cafe classic with good reason. It's delicious, low fat and freezes well - if there's any left, that is!
Preparation Time 20 minutes
Cooking Time 45 minutes
Makes 1 loaf
* 300g (2 cups) self-raising flour
* 70g (1/3 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
* 100g walnuts, coarsely chopped
* 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
* 2 eggs, lightly whisked
* 250ml (1 cup) milk
* 1 cup (about 2 large) mashed banana

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line the base and sides of a 6cm-deep, 20 x 10cm loaf pan with non-stick baking paper.
2. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar, walnuts and bicarbonate of soda, and stir to combine.
3. Add the egg, milk and banana, and gently fold until well combined. Spoon the mixture into the lined pan. Bake in oven for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve.

Notes & tips
* Time plan/freezing tip: Make this recipe 1 day ahead. Store in an airtight container. To freeze, wrap slices in plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.
