150g pitted dates, roughly chopped into small pieces 

75g butter, cubed 

25g light brown soft sugar 

3 bananas, peeled and roughly chopped (about 250g)

 3 eggs 

200g strong wholemeal flour

2 tsp baking powder

 ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda

Ingredients :

Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a loaf tin with baking parchment

Put the chopped dates, butter, sugar and 75ml of boiling water into a heatproof bowl, give the ingredients a little stir and leave them to soak and melt for 5 minutes. 

Tip the contents of the bowl into the food processor and add the banana chunks and eggs. Blitz until the whole lot is smooth and then tip the mixture into a medium mixing bowl.

 Sift the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into the mixture, giving it a good beating with a wooden spoon until well combined.

 Pour the batter into the loaf tin and bake the cake for 1 hour in the oven.

 Remove the loaf tin from the oven and leave it to sit for 10 minutes before turning out and cutting up.
