A beautiful cake, I added a small bar of broken chocolate to the mix to give a lovely gooeyness when the cake was baked and placed banana on the top whilst baking it. I served it warm from the oven with ice cream - absolutely divine :-)

looked good in the oven, then collapsed after it came out! it was dense and flat - more like a banana custard - tastes ok, but don't expect a 'cake' with this recipe. won't make it again.

I have used this recipe several times now and it always turns out wonderfully! I usually add about 70g chopped up dark chocolate and stir this into the mix before baking.

made this recipe three times now and everybody (and I mean everybody) loves it. Played around with it and added some plums and also dessicated coconut and the results are just as good, if not butter. If there is any recommendation that I would give is to make double quantities as it goes pretty quickly!

Way too much sugar in this recipe. The birds enjoyed it though but it was a waste of the ingredients. If I try it again I will only use half the sugar.

add a teaspoon of baking soda and it will rise better

This cake was so easy to make, didn't have any walnuts so used almonds instead, it tasted great and the kids loved it. I had to bake it for longer than an the recipe said but not a problem.

I have made this cake for my friend's birthday for the first time. Everyone loved it. I have added chopped Walnut as suggested. I also squeezed a bit lemon to the banana before mashing to keep the colour and give it a bit of tang. I also used butter cream icing and whole walnut to decorate it. I am going to make it again for a dinner party. THANK YOU for the fantastic recipe. Try the butter cream icing: 250g room temperature butter 6 tbsp icing sugar, sieved (add more if you like it sweet) 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 tsp dark rum Have fun baking. :-)
