    As always very tasty, depending on banana size, you only need to use 3 large ones, best use very over ripe ones for more of a banana flavour
    Deliciously moist banana bread. Made it several times already

    Great recipe. I decreased the amount of sugar to max. 100g - it depends on how sweet the bananas are, sometimes I use only 50g of sugar (i'm using dark cane sugar) and it's still sweet enough. Instead of plain flour I'm using spelt flour and the taste is still great, also the consistence is perfect!!! 😊😊

    Great recipe, although I would suggest cooking at 150 for an hour and then 20mins or so on 180. Add an extra 2oz butter +choc chips and it’s perfect! 🙂

    Amazing. Taste so good. It’s my go-to dish. After my experience of making this dish a lot of times, I learned that by not adding the buttermilk the bread tastes better.
