This no-guilt treat is surprising moist and has a wonderful flavour. It's also a great way to use up over-ripe bananas. For a little variation, you can add nuts or sultanas.
If your bananas are already black but you can't make a cake right away, simply pop them in the freezer. Defrost the bananas whenever you're ready to bake!
Made it healthier. i tend to find banana bread too sweet so made it with around 80g sugar and put in an extra banana. i skinned and quickly cooked a desert apple instead of the puree and added more spice but it was a great recipe base and i'll definately use it again. - 10 Mar 2009
Great recipe! Chunks in the apple sauce gave it something and went great with the cinnamon. Used candarel instead of sugar and added walnuts - delish! (I would cover with foil while cooking till nearer the end or the crust will go a bit dark/hard) - 22 Nov 2011
I made this recipe as cupcakes and it was fab. Very light and fluffy. I added raisins to the mixture and a little extra apple sauce. I also sprinkled them with oats and then cooked for 15 mins. They are so moist and delicious - 06 Feb 2012
