Banana bread with SunGold kiwis

Today is National Banana Bread Day!

Banana bread with a difference! This tasty take on the standard recipe with the addition of SunGold kiwis really livens up the taste buds. Packed full of vitamin C, kiwis are the ultimate superfood and compliment the bananas perfectly.

Serves: Makes 1 loaf tin

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 35-40 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

You will need:

2 SunGold kiwis

2 medium very ripe bananas

110g butter, softened

170g caster sugar

2 large eggs

225g self-raising flour

Chocolate, roughly chopped (optional)

1 tablespoon demerara sugar

What to do:

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.

Grease and line a loaf tin.

Peel one of the SunGold kiwis and mash in a bowl along with the two bananas and set aside.

In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

One by one, mix in each egg, stirring carefully to make sure it is well incorporated.

Mix in the flour until stirred through. Add the mashed banana and kiwi.

If using, here is where you would add your chunks of chocolate.

Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and sprinkle over the demerara sugar.

Slice the remaining SunGold kiwi and arrange across the top of the cake.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until cooked through and golden.
