Ingredients

  • 125 grams plain/all-purpose flour 1 cup
  • 50 grams almond flour 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large ripe bananas - mashed
  • 50 grams unsalted butter - melted 1/4 cup
  • 60 millilitres vegetable oil 1/4 cup
  • 150 grams dark brown sugar 3/4 cup - packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 130 grams semi-dried apricots - chopped 1/2 cup or 16 whole ones

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4 and either line or lightly grease a 2lb loaf tin, and place to one side.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the plain/all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder and salt then place it aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add in the mashed bananas and mix them with the melted butter and oil.
  • Then add the sugar, egg and almond extract and mix until smooth.
  • Pour in the dry ingredients and with a gentle hand fold them in together.
  • Then fold in the chopped semi-dried apricots and transfer the batter into your prepared loaf tin.
  • Place the loaf tin into your hot oven in the centre.
  • I have a very slow oven so it took an hour to bake through but check on your loaf at the 50-minute mark. An inserted pick should come out clean, or with only a few crumbs on it.
  • Once baked through, leave your loaf to cool for 5 minutes in the tin. Then gently turn it out onto a wire rack to fully cool down.
  • This loaf can be kept in a cool environment in an airtight tin for 5 days. This loaf also freezes well, either freeze it as a whole or cut it up into slices and freeze the individual slices.
