Yummy banana bread

    Lovely recipe for banana bread. I have also used dried apricots for the sultanas. Leave until cold, or better still, the next day. Enjoy with a cup of tea!

    Very nice bread but the recipes oven timing is off. This loaf only took 50 minutes in a regular oven and that was probably 5 minutes too much. Tasty though.  -  25 Jan 2015


    Superb recipe. I used both apricots and sultanas, and only cooked it for 55minutes in my fan oven, and most of it disappeared while it was still warm. An excellent way to use up bananas. I have tried lots of banana bread recipes and this is definately the best.  -  25 Jul 2013
