I loved the fact that this recipe used minimal ingredients. I used unsalted butter, wholemeal flour and soft light brown sugar. Baked for 45 minutes and it turned out perfectly. Look forward to baking it again next weekend :)

Just made this and its fantastic. I was sure to mix realy well and I also used wholemeal plain flour to try and be a bit more healthier. My 1yr old loves this. It rised perfectly. Thanks for the recipe :)

Lovely recipe! I used dark brown soft sugar for a banoffee vibe and the tiniest dash of lime to the banana. Delicious. Cut into 12 slices, each slice is about 166 calories. Xx

I used granulated sugar, dairy free marg and self raising flour as I had no bicarb or baking powder and it worked beautifully!
