Ingredients

  • 3 Weetabix, crumbled
  • 100g essential Waitrose Sultanas
  • 150ml milk
  • 250g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 2 large Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 120g butter, melted
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC, gas mark 3. Grease a 23x13cm non-stick 1.25kg loaf tin and line the sides with baking parchment, making sure it rises 2cm above the rim of the tin.

  2. Place the Weetabix, sultanas and milk in a bowl and set aside until all the milk has been absorbed.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the sugar and eggs until pale and voluminous. Add the banana, butter, flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and ginger, and whisk until well combined. Finally, beat in the Weetabix mixture.

  4. Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 1–1 ¼ hours until golden and firm, and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes then cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Cook’s tip

Add chopped walnuts or hazelnuts to the mixture in step 3 for a nutritious boost. This can be kept in an airtight container for one week.
