This was a really lovely recipe, very moreish! I accidentally left out the already prepared sultanas and it still tasted great. Enjoyed by all. Didn't bother with the sultanas the second time I made it as a couple of family members prefer no sultanas. - 04 Apr 2011


Really yummy and easy to make. I served it hot with butter. The oats made it much more filling and interesting way to use old bananas than a normal banana cake. - 27 May 2012


I feel sad rating this so low, but it was a total flop! i followed this recipe to the dot but when i took it out the tin the whole think feel apart. It was more of a banana crumble than banana bread. Quite embarrassing considering we had friends over. On a plus note the crumbly bits tasted very nice. - 24 Apr 2015
