Fruity Bread/Muffin/Cake!!!

This is one of the staples in our household - I always have to make double because Cam gets rather addicted to it! You can make it as a cake, as muffins or as a slice and it is equally delicious!

60g butter or vegetable oil (I use coconut oil)
60g honey (the original recipe calls for 125g honey, but I find that is way too sweet)
1 egg, beaten
125g carrots or apples (or a mixture), grated
2 bananas, mashed
90g self-raising flour (I use brown rice flour or wholemeal plain flour with a teaspoon of baking powder)
60g sultanas, dried cherries or apricots
1tsp lemon or orange zest, grated

  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Cream the oil/butter with the honey
  • Beat in the egg
  • Add all the other ingredients and mix well (add extra flour, if necessary, until a spoon stands upright in the mixture)
  • Turn into your baking receptacle of choice and bake until golden brown (about 45mins)
 It will keep for about 4 days in an airtight container or freeze it for later use! Yum!!!
