Orange, Banana and Cranberry Loaf Cake

This orange, banana and cranberry cake is one of my favourite recipes to make and I bake this cake often.  It is a tasty and moist loaf cake to bake which filled with amazing flavours and the nuts give it a lovely texture to the cake as well. Best eaten the next day, this cake is great to serve when you are having friends over.

I have to apologies as I do not have the name of the cookbook where I obtained this recipe from.  I always had the neck to spot good recipes when I go browsing in the Library and photographed this recipe on my phone almost 13 years ago in the Old PJ Library when I was brisk reading. I came home tried it, fell in love with the recipe, but never found the same book again.

Also, I am not a fan of icing so did not add the icing sugar and I have omitted the dried peel (as I did not have it at home) and increased the nuts instead. I have also used chopped almonds which have been lightly toasted in the oven and ripe bananas. So feel free to change it up according to your preference.

I love a freshly baked moist loaf cake. Orange, banana and cranberry sounds like a good flavor combination. I bet this smelled as good as it sounds.

Orange and chocolate goes well together as well, but this cake has so much flavour in it
