I only put 2 bananas in and put a 125g punnet of fresh blueberries in, and they were sweet bliss!! If you are reading this, TRY THIS RECIPE!!! - 21 Feb 2012


Made these with my 3 year old Grandson and have to admit, I tweaked it a little. I used Self Raising Flour instead of Plain and added a dollop of cream to the mixture. My family loved them and are begging for them to be made again. - 12 Jul 2012
