• 550g wholemeal bread flour
  • 350ml warm water or herbal tea
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • (or substitute the above for any bird safe fruits of your choice)


Place flour, fruits and some of the liquid into a mixer and give it a good blitz, add more liquid as needed, it needs to be

of a dough consistency. Once blitzed and is of a dough consistency, remove from the mixer, place in a mixing bowl and let it rest for a few minutes, then knead for about 5 minutes on a lightly floured clean board. Place in a silicon bread tin, cover with either a clean damp cloth or clingfilm and leave to rise in a warm place for a good 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, uncover and bake in a preheated oven at 220c for 30-35 minutes. This can not only be enjoyed by your parrots but humans can eat it too and it can be frozen.
