Carrot & Banana Cake

This is a beautiful light flavoursome cake, originally from the Australian Women's Weekly "More Cake and Slices" cookbook. I use a mixture of walnuts and hazlenuts, and use grapeseed oil as the vegetable oil. Keeps well and is great in lunchboxes.

This was very easy to make and in the oven in no time at all. I made mine in my large loaf pan and cooked for 60mins. Very nice with a hot cuppa on a wet cold Sunday afternoon. No icing is a bonus....I can tell myself I am eating a healthy treat. Into my keeper file for sure :)
