If you're keen to avoid processed sugar but just can't live without cake, this is a great recipe to try. The bananas and raisins provide all the sweetness you'll need.


  • 1 lb (450g) very ripe bananas, mashed 
  • 2 oz (50g) brazil nuts, roughly chopped 
  • 3 fl oz (90ml) sunflower oil 
  • 2 fl oz (60ml) water 
  • 4 oz (115g) raisins 
  • 4 oz (115g) rolled oats 
  • 4 oz (115g) wholemeal flour 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/gas mark 5.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together. The consistency should be soft and moist.
  3. Spoon into a greased and lined 900g/2lb loaf tin and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before turning out.
