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. Mix the flours together with the bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar, tartaric acid and mixed spice. 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.
