Lovely loaf, very moist and speedy to make - will reduce timings for fan oven next time by approx 10 mins. - 18 Mar 2014


The most delicious banana loaf I have ever made! Really easy and satisfyingly chewy in a sweet kind of way with the honey. All gone within the day, even loved by my youngest who doesn't like cake! Will be making again, and again and ..... Well you get the idea. - 14 May 2013


Completely collapsed. I am interested in how the previous reviewer managed to reduce the sugar by 50 g when there is only 55 in the recipe. The proportions of sugar/butter/flour/egg sounded odd when I made this. It initially rose and then sunk. Not a good result for me. - 12 Jun 2014
