Ingredients

  • 30g vegetable oil, plus extra for the tin
  • 120g plain white gluten-free flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1½ tsp mixed spice
  • 4 bananas
  • 80g runny honey, plus 1 tbsp
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g walnuts, chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Oil a 900g loaf tin and line with baking paper. In a large bowl, combine the flour, ground almonds, bicarbonate of soda, mixed spice and ½ tsp of salt. Peel and mash three of the bananas in another large bowl, then add the oil, 80g of honey, the eggs and vanilla extract, and whisk to combine.

  • STEP 2

    Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, being careful not to over-mix – a few lumps are fine. Fold in the walnuts until just combined, then pour the batter into the prepared tin and level the surface. Peel and slice the remaining banana in half lengthwise and arrange on top. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top of the loaf is deeply golden and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Immediately brush with the remaining honey while the loaf is still hot, then cool in the tin for 10 minutes before lifting onto a wire rack to cool completely.
