I had some Doves Farm self-raising wholemeal flour in the cupboard and needed to make a quick cake to take to a friend. I also had a banana so decided on this and everyone likes banana bread. I just followed the recipe, it came out perfectly with great crumb and moist and also very healthy. I am sure the quality of the flour plays a big part as I do not usually get such great results with other products. Make this, you will not be disappointed.

I didn't have a loaf tin so used a round cake tin. I made my cake with Doves Farm gluten free plain white flour which turned out really well. Very easy to make and delicious.
