Add the dry ingredients into the wet and fold together using a rubber spatula. You want to be careful not to over mix. Once you can no longer see any flour stop mixing.

Pour batter into your lined loaf pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean. Allow loaf to fully cool to room temperature before removing it from the pan.
