  1. Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Butter and line the base of a 900g loaf tin. Mix together the bananas, eggs, butter, toffee yogurt and sugar, until well combined. Sift the flour and baking powder together and fold into the mixture, then fold in three-quarters of the pecan nuts and half the toffees.

  2. Spoon the mixture into the tin and level the top. Sprinkle on the remaining nuts and toffees. Bake for 50-55 mins until the loaf is risen and feels springy. Cool in the tin, then remove and peel off the lining. Will keep, wrapped, in an airtight container, for up to 3-4 days.

Lovely recipe. Really moist and tasty. I didn't have any toffee yogurt but I had some buttermilk, which I mixed with 2 dessert spoons of maple syrup! Voila mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Made this cake the 1st time the otherday, it took another 20mins to cook, my loaf tin was slightly smaller so some of mixture overflowed, not a disaster tho, came out brilliant, so moist. I've always found banana cakes always to be rather bland,but not the case with this one,put alot of toffee in and on the top. The top was all melted and crunchy. The 2nd cake, made today in a deep round tin, ran out of toffee's so used cadburys choc eclairs a whole bag, and didnt have toffee yogurt so used a vanilla substitute. WOW what a difference in a deep round tin,changes made no difference at all !

Everyone loved this and asked for the recipe. Making it again already! Only comment from my fiance was more banana. I didn't use Werthers toffees, just plain old Waitrose own!

This is such a moist, yummy cake. Made it for a bake sale and it sold out first! I warmed up the chocolate eclairs in the microwave for 20 seconds as people suggested and it made them much easier to cook. Mine normally takes an hour in the oven, i think it's because the temperature seems a bit lower.

This looks delicious because of the topping and is a lovely moist cake without being too sweet. I had trouble finding the correct toffees and used fudge. It worked perfectly.

This was a firm favorite with my family. Easy to make. I used Thorntons chewy toffees which worked well.

So good! couldn't get any softer toffees at the shop for some reason so went for a bag of cadbury's chocolate eclairs which tasted amazing. the only change i wold make is to use the full bag next time, as it won't harm the recipe and the crunchy, chewiness is amazing!

Delicious! I also made the mistake of not realising there is more than one type of Werthers but it was still yummy. Took some in to work and it was gone within minutes.

Brilliant cake. Really easy to make, although the toffees don't seem to be sold in that many shops. I always receive lots of compliments about this cake :-)
