Fact - this is too easy to make. Just throw everything in a bowl, mix it, then put it in the oven. The fun thing about this is, try adding maybe, a tea spoon of nutella? or some orange rind, lemon rind. Maybe change vanilla essence to Orange. just chuck random stuff in, its great fun

I'm sorry but this is the worst thing I've baked in my life! The cake developed a crust and yet remained uncooked on the inside. Tried leaving it longer than recommended but it made no difference. I followed the recipe to the letter but the results were far from desirable. Waste of time, ingredients and effort! If you want my advice, find another recipe as this one has turned out to be too easy to be true......

I added an extra banana and i received so many great comments. My partner took some to his building site and they all rated i as "fat" which apparently is great!!!

This has become my signature piece and my daughters are always telling me their friends want to know when I'm making the next one! It's got to the point when anyone eating a banana is almost a sin as that reduces the chance of the next cake being baked! I usually add walnuts but pinenuts and chopped dates also work just as well.
