Cook Time 40 mins
Course Breakfast, Snack


  • 3 Ripe Bananas The riper the better
  • 1 Large Carrot
  • Cup Dried Raisins
  • ¼ Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp All Spice
  • 100 g OPTIONAL: Brown Sugar
  • 150 ml Sunflower Oil Vegetable Oil also works
  • 270 g Self-Raising Flour


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Line a 20cm round baking tray (or 2lb loaf baking pan).
  • Mush the bananas in a mixing bowl. Add in the eggs, vanilla, carrots and sunflower oil. [If you are using sugar, you can add it in at this stage]. Whisk it all together using a fork or dedicated whisk.
  • Now tip in the flour, raisins, cranberries, all spice, nutmeg and mix together. Make sure all the ingredients are well mixed in.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking tin. Place it in the oven for 40 minutes or until the mixture looks like it has risen well and when you put a knife through the cake it comes out dry.
  • Leave it out to cool down for around 10 minutes before placing it onto a suitable surface (wire rack is best if you have one).
  • Enjoy on its own or like we did topped with unsalted cashes and almonds!
