Use black bananas. In fact, if they turn black, put bananas into freezers to keep for when you're ready to prepare. Once defrosted they will be pulp like and mix into cake batter much more easily giving you a cooked consistency like mud cake. Sometimes requires a little extra time in the oven. Don't panic - just keep testing with a tester and take out when ready. Can be iced with a chocolate ganache. Is delicious once cooled but the flavour really kicks in after 24 hours.
Used different ingredients. I added some cinnamon to this and it was gorgeous. - 12 Oct 2009
Mixture a bit moist and needed extra time to cook but absolutely delicious, will make again. - 05 Jul 2010
Made the loaf this afternoon. Used Nutmeg instead of Vanilla - but that's just personal taste. Also used 200g of banana. Came out great. It was so moist, but firm outside and I can't wait to have some with custard after dinner. - 19 Oct 2013
