    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 very rarely bake. Excess bananas on hand. This recipe was easy to follow...except sifting oats! Dropped sugar to 3/4 cup. End result was excellent, moist but not stodgy. Husband, not a lover of banana bread, was duly impressed and looking for more!  -  13 Mar 2017
