This was a wonderfully easy loaf to make, and delicious. It turned out well and had the kids coming back for more all the time. - 20 Nov 2012


Sooo easy, I had five small bananas and the rest of the ingredients were in the cupboard...1 hour later, and I had fresh banana loaf. My Mum and Dad (in their 80's) and my grandson (8) LOVED it!! - 05 Dec 2013
