Banana & Raisin Cake

This recipe is a firm favourite at The Yoga Hall, especially with toddlers and in the pre-natal class. It does not contain sugar, is easy to make and delicious.

4 ripe bananas (mashed)
2 eggs (beaten)
1 tsp mixed spice
cup (75g) sun-dried raisins (raisins retain large amounts of pesticides, so use organic if you can)
A third of a cup (75g) softened butter or margarine
1 cup (115g) wholemeal self-raising flour (or 115g spelt flour and 1 tsp baking powder)

Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/180C/350F. Mix together the beaten eggs and the mashed bananas. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Transfer to an oiled loaf tin and bake for 40 minutes until cooked through.

Om Shanti
