Ingredients (serves 12)

* 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
* 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
* 1 tsp ground nutmeg
* 125g pitted dates, chopped
* 1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar
* 1 cup (250ml) milk
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup mashed banana (about 2 large)
* Butter, to serve (optional)



Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 24 x 13.5cm loaf pan with non-stick
baking paper. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and nutmeg into a large
bowl. Stir through the dates and sugar.

Combine the milk, eggs and banana in a separate bowl. Fold into the
date mixture until well combined. Pour into the pan. Bake for 45-50
minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out
clean. Cool for 5 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Slice and serve with the butter if desired.
