Banana Bread

My family loves this. It tastes wonderful straight out of the oven or even toasted with margarine and honey.

The small amount of sugar and walnuts can be omitted if cooking for babies under 12mths. Otherwise, this is a healthy and nutritious alternative to commercially bought cakes and fruit bread that the whole family can enjoy. 

Banana Bread
1 cup wholemeal SR flour
1 cup white SR flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sultanas
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
