Banana and honey loaf
- Preheat the oven to moderate 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Grease a 22 × 12 cm loaf tin. Combine the butter and sugar in a food processor for 1 minute, or until lighter in colour. Add the egg and process until combined. Place 1 tablespoon of the honey in a saucepan over low heat and warm for 1 minute, or until runny. Add to the food processor with the banana and blend until smooth. Add the flour and cinnamon and process until well combined.
- Spoon evenly into the loaf tin and bake for 35–40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the cake. Leave in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool. Warm the remaining honey in a small saucepan over low heat for 1 minute, or until runny. Brush the warm cake with the warm honey. Serve warm or cool.
Note: Alternatively, warm the honey in the microwave on Medium High (70%) for 30 seconds.Variation: Fold ½ cup (60 g) chopped walnuts or pecans through the mixture before spooning into the loaf tin.
