  • Grease and flour a load tin, then pour the batter in.

Notes

  • I used half white flour, half wholemeal flour: you can either use white only, or wholemeal only - it's up to you
  • vegetable oil can be replaced with coconut oil or olive oil; or, why not, butter
  • walnuts can be added too, or almonds or any other nuts of your choice for a nice crunch
  • regular milk can be swapped for soy milk or any other plant-based milk
  • other ingredients that can be added: raisins, dates, chopped dried apricots or any other dried fruit
