    This recipe is one that was passed down from a family friend, and every one that tastes it loves it. Virtually mess free, no mixer required, just a bowl and spoon... now that's my favourite kind of baking...

    This was my first try at banana Bread,it always sounded too difficult. I added walnuts and dried cranberries.When I was slicing it my husband asked for some which is very,very unusual as he does not eat cooked fruit. He said he could not resist because the kitchen smelled so good.Now he goes looking for over-ripe bananas. Thank You.  -  15 Sep 2012

    for a gluten and dairy-free alternative, use gluten free flour (self raising) and dairy free margarine (most margarines contain milk solids - I used nutellex) and it smells and tastes delicious!  -  20 Nov 2011
