Ingredients
  • 125g wholemeal spelt flour OR 75g wholemeal, 50g white spelt OR 125g buckwheat flour for gluten-free option (flatter cake)
  • 2 ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 75g sultanas/raisins
  • 50g butter or ghee, melted (use an oil such as coconut or sunflower oil for dairy free)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp rice/oat/soya milk
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • agave syrup or raw honey, to serve (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Grease and line a 450g loaf/1lb tin with baking parchment (or a wider tin for a thinner, flatter cake - this works well with the gluten-free buckwheat option).
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sultanas.
  3. In another bowl, mix the butter, vanilla essence, egg, milk and mashed bananas with a fork.
  4. Pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture and combine thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
  5. Pour the cake mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 40 mins or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven, allow to cool in the tin for 10 mins then turn out.
  6. Drizzle with agave syrup/honey if using.
