- 125 g butter - at room temperature
- 25 g coconut sugar or rapadura - 2 tbsp (optional)
- 2 free-range or organic egg/s

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F (fan-forced). Line a slice tin with baking paper.
Mix the butter, sugar, eggs, bananas, vanilla, milk and cinnamon in a high speed blender for a minute. Thermomix, 1 minute, speed 5.
Add the bicarb and salt and blend for a couple of seconds. Add the flour and fold through the mixture. Thermomix, flour symbol, a couple of turns until the flour is mostly incorporated into the wet. Finish with a spatula if necessary.
Place in a lined slice tin and top with finely sliced rhubarb and raspberries. Bake for 20 minutes or until the centre is cooked.
Replace the butter with coconut oil or macadamia nut oil (the coconut oil does toughen it when it cools, but it's still delicious).
Replace the flour with your favourite GF flour.
Rach tested egg-free for me and I'm happy to announce chia eggs were a success.

Add any nuts or seeds to the batter or top.
The bananas need to be very ripe or it won't be sweet enough as there's very little added sugar.
