Pour all your ingredients (see below) in a bowl, I don't even bother to sift!
Mix (you can mix by hand)
Bake for one hour 180'
Oh and I forgot Four, eat fresh out of the oven with a slathering of butter,mmm mmm. Or the next morning it tastes even better toasted.
As Eddie goes down for his day time nap these days he asks for a piece of cake when he wakes up. Regardless of my plans for his nap time it is usually easy to whip up a cake or two. See here and here for my other superquick recipes.
This is my favourite at the moment, sort of a fruit bread, not much fat and it uses up any spare fruit in the house; bananas, pears or apples.
2 pieces of fruit; mashed bananas, diced pears, or apples (fresh or tinned)
2 cups wholemeal flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup raw sugar
Nuts or spices for taste; cinnamon, walnuts etc
NB If using the apples, I cube them and pop them in a dish with a small amount of water and put in the microwave or stovetop for a couple of minutes, just to soften. Add the water to the mixing bowl if using this way. Or you could use tinned apples.
