  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) buttermilk
  • 2 large overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 yellow peach, stoned, finely chopped
  • 150g blueberries
  • 1/3 cup (35g) walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 yellow peach, extra, stoned, thinly sliced
  • Brown sugar, extra, to sprinkle
  • Peach icing
  • 1/2 small yellow peach, stoned, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 cup (160g) icing sugar mixture

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 10cm x 24cm (base measurement) loaf pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing sides to overhang. Combine the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl.

STEP 2

Whisk the egg, oil, buttermilk and banana in a large jug until well combined. Add to flour mixture. Stir to combine. Stir in the chopped peach, blueberries and walnut. Spoon into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Top with the sliced peach and sprinkle with extra sugar.

STEP 3

Bake for 45-50 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 mins before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

STEP 4

Meanwhile, to make peach icing, place peach and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until peach is tender. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Discard solids. Stir in icing sugar. Tint with a little food colouring.

STEP 5

Drizzle banana bread with icing.
