The cherries in this cake provide a wonderful spark of colour. The yoghurt keeps it light while the nuts give a crunch.

  • 230g self raising flour, wholemeal or white
  • 110g brown sugar
  • 75g walnuts, roughly chopped

  1. Rub butter into flour then stir in the sugar and 50g of the walnuts.

  3. Mix together the mashed bananas, yoghurt and egg then add to the dry ingredients to form a stiff dough.
  4. Spoon into a greased and lined bread tin. Level the surface and sprinkle with the remaining walnuts.
  5. Bake at 180 degrees C for 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  6. Leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
