This nutty loaf is the perfect afternoon tea fix; it’s great eaten on it’s on, toasted with melting butter or even topped with banana and melted chocolate for a real sweet treat. The smell of bread baking in the oven is always a welcoming scent to the kitchen so try adding a mixture of whatever nuts you have in the cupboard, or even try adding dried fruits too.

  • 150g soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 100g hazelnuts chopped
  • 220g strong white flour
  • 1tbsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
