Delicious, and a great way of ensuring those mushy bananas get used up!

Fantastic recipe. Though the loaf was super tasty! Timings are a bit out though. I had it in for 1hr5 and it was still slightly underdone when i cut into it. I would suggest 1hr- 1hr15 cooking time.

Thanks toms112 for sharing this recipe. It was superb ! I've served it to friends, family, and work colleagues and in all instances everybody love it. We actually prefer it with white chocolate chips and I reduced the sugar just a little bit plus I usually do not bother melting the butter if it is already softened. I just beat with the sugar and followed the recipe after that.

Oh this is absolute yummy. Made in the Aga too and brilliantly used up my old bananas. It took 30 minutes on the grid shelf on the bottom of the roasting oven (Cold shelf was two shelves down from the tip) then I placed the now hot 'Cold' shelf in the simmering oven where I placed in near to the bottom & Cooked loaf on it for a further 20 minutes....results perfect!!

Absolutely love this recipe. It's a firm favourite in our household and tried and tested with our family and friends. The only comment is we always have to bake for at least 20 minutes longer than the stated time.

Just needs a little longer in the oven- at a lower heat for my oven (Circotherm-still can'tget used to it) but delicious and brilliant for fussy eaters. Brilliant for using up old bananas that might not want to be eaten on their own

Have just made this and it is currently in the oven, not sure how it will turn out yet but the mix was delicious. A tip if you are going to make this is if you have expensive pots with a heavy bottom they keep the heat really well. I found when i mixed in the choc chips they melted from the pot heat. So either quickly transfer the mix to the baking tin or transfer sugar butter mix from pan to a mixing bowl before continuing.
