Mum’s Banana, Date & Walnut loaf

This blog is now hosted at http://veganchickie.com

This is one of my Mum’s specialties, which I have veganised. It worked out really deliciously well, so I’m hoping that Mum will take note and make it for me this way next time I visit her! *hint hint*

If you are looking for a healthy banana loaf, try this link for a sugar-free, wholemeal version, because this loaf is filled with sugary & (vegan)buttery goodness!

Mum’s Banana, Date and Walnut loaf

Ingredients:

125 g vegan butter/marg (I use olivani)
3/4 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 very ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chopped, pitted dates
3/4 cup SR flour
3/4 cup Plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Mash bananas finely with fork (should be about 1 cup of banana).  Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add oil, mix well. Add bananas and vanilla, mix until well combined.  Stir in sifted flours and soda in two lots. Mix well. Add walnuts and dates, mix, and then spread mixture into a well-greased loaf tin, bake in moderate oven for 60 – 80 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.  Stand for a few minutes before turning onto a wire rack.

*Mum actually uses a 20cm ring tin to bake this one, and baking time is greatly reduced with the ring tin because you don’t have to wait for the middle to cook through. I don’t have one though so I used a regular tin.
