Beat the banana / apple / carrot / chestnut / tofu to a smooth purée with the milk and egg. This is best done in a liquidizer. Beat the purée into the cooled fruit mixture.

Fold the flour mixture in quickly to the cooled fruit mixture and pour the mixture immediately into a deep 8 cake or 2 LB loaf tin lined with a layer of nonstick baking paper.

Preheated oven gas mark 4 350°F 180°C
Bake for 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours.
Cool in tin before turning out and removing paper.

Variations: Use 8 oz/225g mixture of any of the following: sorghum flour, millet flour, sweet chestnut flour, teff flour - to replace the rice flour and lentil flour.
