Banana and Crema de Leche Loaf

Time: 45 minutes
Effort: Easy
Serves 6


Ingredients
3 tbsp crema (or known as "dulce") de Leche
1 egg
2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
6 oz butter, softened
1 1/4 c self-raising flour
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup cane sugar
2 heaping tbsp plain yogurt
1/4 c heavy cream

Heat oven to 350oF. Butter and flour a loaf pan. In a large bowl or in your food processor, combine all ingredients except the nuts and crema de leche,  to form a smooth mixture. Fold in the nuts, then turn half the mixture into the loaf pan. Add 1 1/2 tbsp crema de leche and swirl with a spoon or knife. Add the remaining mixture and crema de leche, and swirl again. Bake for approx. 35 minutes or until firm and when inserting a toothpick it comes out clean. The crema de leche with settle a little on the bottom and some in the middle - this is a super tea cake or dessert served with vanilla ice cream !
