Easy Banana Loaf

    1 hour 15 minutes

    This is a very easy recipe, you don't have to cream the butter and sugar - just melt and mix. I add vanilla, cinnamon and/or nutmeg to mine sometimes.

    I'm a banana bread fiend, and this recipe had to be the greatest I have EVER tasted. I added chocolate chips in place of nuts, and it's brilliant!! Thanks for the recipe.  -  12 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    As a baking novice I made this with gluten free flour for my wife and it turned out brilliant. I added raisons as I didn't have or couldn't find the chopped nuts and I reduced the sugar to 100gms. So simple and tasty - thank you.  -  18 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This was lovely. I made it with gluten free ingredients and then added 3tbsp of milk for a little more moisture as gluten free can be a little drier. Also added a teaspoon of cinnamon. Yum.  -  29 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
