Banana Bread

Delicious banana, walnut and raisin bread or even as cake for dessert.



  1. Pour hot tea over raisins and allow to soak while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 340 °F (170 °C).
  3. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a bowl. Melt the butter and combine it with the sugar in another bowl, then add the eggs one at a time.
  4. Mash the bananas and add these to the wet ingredients too.
  5. Stir in the walnuts, drained raisins and vanilla extract.
  6. Finally stir in the flour mixture a third at a time.
  7. Scrape into a loaf tin (buttered and floured) and bake for 1 hour until a skewer comes out clean.
