4 large eggs
¾ cup canola oil
¾ cup muscovado sugar
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, mashed
Grated zest of 1 orange
1 ½ cups whole spelt flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh cranberries, halved


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9X5 loaf pan with parchment paper.

Using an electric mixer, mix the eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, mashed banana and orange zest until well combined. Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a bowl and add to the wet mixture. Mix again until the batter is smooth and shiny. Fold in the cranberries.

Transfer the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the cake is set and a skewer inserted in the center comes out almost clean, about 30 minutes.
