What do you do when you have a Thermomix and a bunch of bananas that are as the kids like to say “off”?
You create a Thermomix Banana Fruit Bread Recipe 🙂
Yep a lovely cake that is like a cross between a fruit cake and banana bread … mmm delicious!
If you like either of the two mentioned cakes above then you must try this recipe.
Keeps beautifully moist for a good few days - I like to warm a piece in the microwave for 20 seconds prior to eating!

You could use any sort of nuts to suit you. You could swap Cranberries for the Cherries if you wish. This recipe I converted from a "Delicious" recipe book.
