125 grams butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 3/4 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup mashed banana (approximately 2 bananas)
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or any other types of nuts you want
1 cup yoghurt or sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a loaf pan with baking paper. Beat butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until pale and creamy, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Combine sifted flour, cinnamon, mashed banana, chopped dates and chopped walnuts, and stir into mixture. Add yoghurt mixed with baking soda.
Pour mixture into a lined loaf pan and bake for about an hour or more, until an inserted skewer comes out clean. It is best to watch the oven when it’s close to an hour so you can check if it’s cooked.
