Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 2 cups SR flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dried dates, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 medium bananas, mashed


  • Firstly set up SC. The loaf is baked in a silicone loaf tin so I prep it with spray oil. Then fill my SC with 2 cups of water and put a couple of egg rings on the bottom. Then start the cooker so the water can heat up while mixing up the ingredients.
  • Mix together dates, bicarb and water in a small mixing bowl, let stand for 10 minutes. Beat egg whites and sugar together for 1 minute. Mash banana and mix with the egg. Add in the dates and only a third of a cup of the water they soaked in.
  • Gently fold flour into into mixture in one go. When its just mixed, pour into the loaf tin. Set up loaf tin on top of the egg rings, put a tea towel under the lid, and keep the cooker going on high for 1-1 1 /2 hours
  • Yummo!

  1. I love this recipe and it never fails, I have made with Gluten Free flour too and turned out just as good. My SC can’t fit a loaf tin so I make in a round cake tin, no sure if it has a bearning or not.
