I make Nigella's Banana Bread from my well-used Domestic Goddess book regularly and wondered if I would be able to freeze it?

Nigella's classic Banana Bread (from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS) can be frozen once it has fully cooled. To freeze a whole loaf, wrap it tightly in a double layer of clingfilm and then a layer of foil, or instead of using the foil put the clingfilm-wrapped loaf in a large resealable bag and seal tightly. Freeze for up to 3 months. To defrost the loaf unwrap it and put it on a wire rack at room temperature for 3-4 hours, then store in an airtight container.
If, for convenience, you prefer to freeze individual slices of a loaf then wrap the slices carefully in clingfilm and freeze the wrapped slices in airtight containers for up to 1 month. The smaller size of the slices means that the banana bread is more vulnerable to the effects of freezer burn and drying out. Individual slices should thaw in 1-2 hours at room temperature.
