4 ripe ba­nanas, about 700g 75g un­salted but­ter, melted, plus ex­tra for greas­ing 1 egg, beaten 150g white plain flour 50g whole­meal plain flour 4tsp bak­ing pow­der 1/2tsp salt 75g sun­flower seeds Pre­heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6. Lightly grease a 22 x 11 x 7cm/1kg loaf tin with a lit­tle but­ter.

Peel and mash the ba­nanas in a large bowl (a few lumps are OK). Add the melted but­ter, fol­lowed by the egg, and stir well.

Add both flours, the bak­ing pow­der and salt to the bowl. Gen­tly fold ev­ery­thing to­gether un­til well mixed. Set aside about one ta­ble­spoon of the sun­flower seeds, then fold the rest into the mix­ture.

Use a spat­ula to trans­fer the mix­ture to the loaf tin. Shake gen­tly to dis­trib­ute it evenly in the tin and then smooth the top with the spat­ula. Sprin­kle the re­served sun­flower seeds on top.

Bake for 55-65 min­utes un­til well browned and risen. Leave to cool in the tin.
