Fruit toast! Offer fruit toast alongside more traditional banana bread. Here are 6 perfect ways to top your toast:

  • Fruit jams
  • Macadamia chocolate spread
  • Grilled figs and goat’s cheese
  • Poached fruit and yoghurt
  • Ricotta and berry compote
  • A simple butter spread

Fruit and nut loaf

  • Add a handful of almonds, walnuts, pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts, or any nut of your liking, to the dough prior to baking.

Fruit and chocolate bread

  • Add some chocolate chips or chocolate pieces into the dough balls before baking and you’ll end up with a sweet chocolatey, fruity bread. Garnish with your choice of chocolate flakes, ganache or cream icing.

Hot cross buns

  • Hot cross buns that are fluffy and fragrant. Make them for Easter, or have them all year round!
