Plum, Apple, and Banana Loaf

Inspired by the amazing weather we're having in Munich (over 20 degrees!) and that I went a bit mad with fruit buying I decided to bake today. Basing it on the normal recipe for banana bread I also added Plums, apples, and grapes!
What you need:
Half a cup of white sugar
Half a cup of butter/margarine
2 cups and three quarters full of flour
1 and a half teaspoons of baking powder
2 eggs
2 Plums
1 Banana
1 Apple       (You can mix and match what fruit you want eg raisins, grapes, blueberries - anything!)

What you have to do:
Slice all your fruit and mash your banana. (I got a bit carried away and also added some red seedless grapes)                             
Butter your loaf tin and preheat the oven (I have a mini oven so the time will vary, I did mine around 150 but if you have a normal oven it will probably be around 180 degrees).   
Start adding your ingredients to your mixing bowl, start with the butter and sugar (mix well each time something is added), then the eggs, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and finally when the dough is thoroughly mixed the fruit! If it looks like there's too much fruit in comparison to the dough, I wouldn't worry as the baking powder makes the dough grow. Pour the mixture into your tin.
I did mine a bit messily.. sorry!

Put it in the oven and let it bake for an hour!

 Wait 10 minutes and take it out of the tin to let it cool down

A perfect treat for Spring, enjoy!
