1. Preheat oven 190°C (170°C fan-forced). Grease a 13.5cm x 24cm (base measurement) loaf pan with cooking spray and line with baking paper.

2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spice into a large bowl. Stir in the brown sugar. Combine the milk, eggs and banana in a bowl then gently stir into the flour mixture until just combined.

3. Spoon into loaf pan, scatter over the blueberries and gently poke them into the batter with your fingertips, smooth the surface.

4. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand for 10 minutes in the pan before lifting onto a wire rack. Serve warm, toasted or at room temperature.

Tip: 2 large ripe bananas should yield 1 cup of mashed banana.
