  • 30 ml runny honey
  • 45 ml orange juice

Preheat oven at 180C. Spray a 13cm x 20cm loaf pan with non stick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, bran, rosemary, butternut, almonds and orange rind. Beat honey, orange juice, egg and buttermilk together and add to other ingredients. Mix well.

Spoon into prepared pan and bake at for 50 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

If desired, some deep fried butternut slices can be used to decorate the loaf. Using a vegetable peeler, peel thin slices of butternut. Preheat some oil in a pan and fry the butternut in the hot oil for 1-2 minutes. Drain on paper towel and use to decorate the top of the loaf.
