Banana Bread

This is just such an amazing cake in the winter months, that will make you feel all cozy, to cuttle up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a slice of this.
It is also a good way to use up bananas that has gone beyond the eating stage, but are perfect for baking.

4 very ripe bananas
3 medium eggs
150g sugar (i use natural caster unrefined cane sugar) 
100ml mild oil (like vegetable, groundnut oil or light olive oil, like i used)
250g plain white flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fine salt
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
100g raisins
75g chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 175°C 

Line a big loaf tin with baking paper or a loaf liner.

Whisk eggs and sugar with an electric whisk for a few minutes until thick and fluffily, then whisk in the oil.
Mash with a fork or whisk. Add to the egg mixture.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a second bowl, and mix in with the the wet ingredients, 1/2 at the time, with the whisk on low or using a big spoon.
Last stir in the raisins and chopped walnuts. Then pour into loaf tin.

Bake for about 1h 15min until darkish brown.
leave to cool in loaf tin for about 15 minutes, then remove from tin and let cool on a wire rack.
