Banana + oat loaf

I go to the Food Show in Auckland each year - it's a food and wine paradise, last year there were even a couple of whiskey distillers there!  Whilst I was busy samplingthe local fire water, KB had been drawn to a game show-type stand.  Buy a subscription to our magazine and you can spin the lucky wheel!  So we walked away with a 12-month sub for Food, and a copy of some dodgy old dude singing ballads CD. 
The latest issue has some real gems in it, so far, and this tasty cake is one of them...

1 + 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp each baking powder, baking soda, mixed spice
125 g butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp molasses
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees celcius.  Line loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugar, until pale and smooth.  Add eggs and molasses, beating after each addition. 
  3. Fold in dry ingredients.  Mix in bananas and milk. 
  4. Spoon mixture into loaf tin and sprinkle with extra oats, if you want to - I used some slivered almonds here. 
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until inserted skewer comes out clean.
