Banana Honey and Seed Loaf

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Wendys Kitchen

This is from the Australian Womens Weekly. We made it over the weekend and it was really delicious. I managed to find a seed mix already made up in the supermarket that I used. I modified slightly - did not use the raisins, used 3/4 cup mashed banana and did not sprinkle honey at the end. I have recently remade this recipe and instead of the buttermilk I added yoghurt. I used rapdura (better for you) sugar. It really is wonderful...

this bread was really good. i liked the crunch of the seeds..but maybe too many seeds. i added some nuts to the top. i also used apple sause, not oil. it was easy to make but i think the oven temp is wrong. after an hour at 180 nothing was cooking so i turned it up to 350 and in an hour my bread was done. its moist and i like the honey in it. thanks for a great recipe.
