Recipe: Banana Raspberry Bread

Living with 3 housemates can sometimes make it difficult to keep track of all the food in our fridge and freezer. We each have a section of our pantry and also share staples like spices, oils and sauces but given the small size of particularly our freezer sometimes things can disappear into the depths and be forgotten about. We recently did a huge clean out and discovered a rather large stash of bananas in the freezer (which I’ve been working my way through in smoothies!) so when I ended up with some overripe bananas I knew I couldn’t add them to the freezer pile so decided banana bread was required instead!

I usually make banana walnut bread in these situations but decided to mix things up a bit, and thanks to discovering additional raspberries in the freezer decided this was the go instead. I’m very glad I did as it was delicious – moist and sweet from the bananas with a nice tart bite from the raspberries. Perfect with a cup of tea and a flick through the newspaper!
