My whole family love this banana cake & Fruit cake fusion I’ve created – The cake is sweet, light and moist!
As it’s made completely in the mixer, it’s so easy. All you need is a bit of time, as the baking time is a little longer than a normal cake.
The combination of fruit dried, with the brown sugar and banana is truly great. This is a one of those cakes you always want in hand in case some one comes over for a quick coffee and this is the perfect load cake to serve with a cuppa.
I do quiet often take this into work, and more often that not it disappears by mid afternoon even slicing into 1/2 slices!
When bananas are getting to the point where they are just a little too ripe, this loaf is perfect to use up older bananas. If you have too many then just freeze the banana peeled and remove from the freezer the day before you plan to bake. You can also freeze this loaf and I’ve done this in the past.
The Banana Fruit Loaf keeps well, as it’s naturally moist from the bananas and as long as your store in an airtight containers it will keep for a few weeks ( if it lasts that long!).

Hi, made the banana fruit cake today n its absolutely yummy. I’m not keen on heavy fruit cake, so this was perfect. I thought the banana might be overpowering but it’s not. It took about an hr to cook. I’m making a christening cake shortly and I think this is the recipe I will use. Thank you
I’m glad you enjoyed it!
