Awesome! Reminded me of the texture of malt loaf dense and sticky, I think you'd actually loose that richness if it were to rise, although it might go further as this didn't last long in my house!!

I followed this recipe and just added a bit of baking soda to get it to rise as per previous comments. Delicious!

Used this recipe, as realised I didn't have eggs at last minute. Didn't really rise, tasted quite nice, but not very sweet, and a little unsure about the almond flavour! But quick and easy to do.

Excellent recipe. I doubled the quantities for a 2lb loaf tin and used half mashed banana and half grated carrot (increase the cooking time by about 20-30mins for 2lb tin). Really moist and lovely - you'd never know there was no added sugar.

I'm on a restricted diet - no sugar, eggs or dairy, so this recipe was perfect and so quick and easy. I used less oil too and added some water to replace it and some manuka honey. Next time I'm going to try it with baking powder as the bread doesnt rise.

I only used half the quantity of oil it suggested and it was still great. Lovely warm with a bit of honey.
