    Tip:

    • For texture and flavour, you need to use very ripe bananas, you’ll need about 2 bananas.
    • Use Creative Gourmet frozen blueberries instead of raspberries if preferred.
    • If you don’t have the exact sized loaf pan, use one with similar dimensions.
    • The loaf is best made a day in advance if toasting slices as it is easier to slice and toast. It keeps in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
