    I baked this banana loaf a couple of weeks ago with a couple of slight tweaks - I added nutmeg instead of cinnamon, a tsp of vanilla extract, a tbsp of coconut flakes, and 100g of chopped dark chocolate instead of chocolate chips. It turned out lovely, I will bake it again for sure.  -  12 Mar 2018


    Really lovely loaf, very easy to follow recipe. I'm not a big cinnamon fan so will try making this with no cinnamon or try half a teaspoon. The family loved this with a smearing of Nutella Choc spread..delicious  -  28 Jan 2018


    I didn't have plain flour so I substituted self-raising and left out the baking powder and bicarbonate. I didn't have chocolate chips so I chopped up some plain and milk chocolate bars I had in the cupboard. I was still about 50g short of chocolate so I put in an extra banana. I lost my loaf tin so I used a brownie pan instead. After all that it still tasted delicious. Two thumbs up! 🙂  -  09 Oct 2017
