Sue's Low Fat Banana Loaf
A GREAT AFTERNOON TREAT, ONLY 150 cal per slice, the only downside is the amount of washing up!
- 2 medium bananas
- the riper the better
- and a great way to use up the ones no one wants to eat.
- 10 oz (275g) plain flour
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tbsp mixed spice
- 1tbsp ground ginger
- 2 oz (50g) light soft brown sugar
- 2 eggs separated
- 4 tbsp clear honey
- 3 fl oz (75 ml) Orange juice

1. Prepare 2lb loaf tin with grease proof paper and preheat oven to 170C, Gas mark 3.
2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, spices and 1/2 tsp salt in a large mixing bowl, stir in sugar.
3. In a separate bowl, mash bananas to a pulp, then add egg yolks, honey and oj and mix well.
4. In a third bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks.
5. Now add banana mixture to dry ingredients and mix well.
6. Add egg white to mixture a little at a time and fold in carefully.
7. Add to tin and smooth over.
8. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hrs, it may need covering with foil for last 30 mins, test with skewer to see if cooked through, may need longer if comes out sticky.
9. Cool for 15 mins in tin, then cool completely on wire rack.
10. Wrap in foil for a day before eating as this improves flavour, this never happens in my house though, we are usually munching on it while it is still warm.
Try it warm served with strawberries and ice cream. YUMMY.
