I have just baked this cake, got to say it is amazing! I used all the ingredients as listed except I didn’t put any milk in after reading previous comments but what I did do was add a dessert spoon of natural yoghurt and the cake baked to perfection in 45 minutes. So moist and delicious, I would highly recommend this cake.

Love this recipe so easy ! I probably added too much milk so would add half but depends on the ripeness of the bananas. So just be aware mixture not too wet.

Tasty cake! It is very moist and took 1hour 45 min in the oven. I would suggest using 2 bananas instead or try not adding milk.

This makes a really lovely cake, but I did make a few modifications - I actually used a brownie pan in the absence of an actual loaf tin, and I also only used 2 (very ripe) bananas and a splash of milk, probably about half the amount the recipe lists. Fully recommend that people make this with bananas which have become too ripe!

I followed the recipe exactly, and ended up having to cook it for an extra 45 minutes longer than stated but it was still not quite cooked on the inside even though the outside was slightly overdone. It was still tasty just shame it took so long.

Really nice cake and easy to follow recipe. Have not made such a wet recipe before and was a bit concerned but read the other comments about baking for a bit longer than it advises and it came out really well. Going to try as muffins next time.

I have been on this site for ages and never felt compelled to comment before but this is an amazing recipe. Haven't made a cake in this way before and it was a wet mixture so I wasn't sure it would work but I stuck with it and was beautiful. As others have said it takes longer to bake, over an hour but well worth the wait.

Can anyone please tell me what size the bananas need to be? Like small, medium, large? Or give me an idea in weight, 100g? 200g? Thank you
