Shakti’s Soul Food: Organic Vegan Banana Bread

Ingredients
3 large black bananas
75ml olive oil/ plus extra for the tin
100g brown sugar
225g plain flour (or use self-raising flour and reduce the baking powder to 2 heaped tsp)
3 heaped tsp baking powder
3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice
50g dried fruit or nuts (optional)
Method
STEP 1Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mash 3 large black peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with 75g vegetable or sunflower oil and 100g brown sugar.
STEP 2Add 225g plain flour, 3 heaped tsp baking powder and 3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice, and combine well. Add 50g dried fruit or nuts, if using.
STEP 3Bake in an oiled, lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning.
STEP 4Bake for another 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
STEP 5Allow to cool a little before slicing. It’s delicious freshly baked, but develops a lovely gooey quality the day after.
