Number of Servings: 9


    250g apples, cored and diced (can peel if desired)
    150g dried apricots
    100g raisins
    250g plain flour
    1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    100g banana, mashed
    100ml vegetable oil
    50ml orange juice concentrate
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1 tsp vanilla essence


1) Put the diced apple in a pan and just enough water to cover. Simmer gently for about 15 minutes, until it mushes to a pulp. Allow to cool.
2) In another pan, add the apricots and raisins, again with just enough water to cover and bring to the boil. Simmer until the water is absorbed. Set aside.
3) Preheat the oven to 375F. In a large mixing bowl, sift in the flour with the ginger, nutmeg and bicarb of soda.
4) In a separate bowl, mash the banana with the oil, orange juice, beaten egg and vanilla essence. Carefully mix in the apple pulp.
5) Toss the apricots and raisins into the flour bowl, coating well. Add the banana mixture, folding until just mixed.
6) Transfer to a lined square tin and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden.
