- Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg gradually and mix well, beating all the time. Mix in the mashed banana. Combine the flour, oatmeal, baking powder and salt. Add this to the creamed mixture and stir well. Add the nuts and the candied peel.
- Spread the mixture into a greased loaf tin (10 x 5 x 2-1/2 inches approx.). Bake at 350°F for about 45 minutes. Insert a skewer into the center of the bread-if it comes out clean, the bread is cooked.
- When the bread is cool, put the bread on a wire tray and cover with a clean tea cloth.
