Introduction

Based on the Nigella Lawson recipe. Tastes good with other nuts instead of walnuts (dessicated coconut, almonds, pecans, etc) and other dried fruits sultanas, cranberries, apricots, lemon peel, etc). Can also substitute oil for butter.
Try subbing 25g of flour with cocoa powder and add 100g of good dark cooking chocolate to make a chocolate version.

This makes about 1kg of banana bread, so you might want to halve the recipe.
Cupcake size pans make about a 40-50gm portion [aprx 200cal for 50gm so a nice treat] are a good way to go. You will get about 20-24 for a full recipe.
If you don't want alcohol use fruit juice to hydrate the raisins or sultanas.
