What to do

1. Make this recipe using a bench top mixer.

2. Cream the butter and sugar on low speed, then slowly add the lightly beaten eggs.

3. Sieve the plain flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, cornflour, cinnamon and salt into another bowl.

4. Fold the flour mixture by hand into the creamed butter, sugar and egg.

5. Mash the bananas and combine with the grated apple and then fold this through the mixture.

6. Preheat a fan-forced oven to 200ºC.

7. Spoon the mixture into an oiled 18 x 10 x 6 cm bread tin. Reduce the oven temperature to 180ºC and bake for 35–40 minutes.
