Easy as. Could never fail and yummy

Absolutely so easy and yummy

So simple and yummy! Very moist

So easy and quick

Easy to make.
Have reduced sugar to half a cup and added cinnamon

Omg so good moist and is perfect for my tumtum
Now sit on the couch and hog the cake
And let the children look at you funny

Easy but far too sweet. A cup of sugar for a cup and a half of flour does seem high, doesn't it?

It was good, I loved the crust and it is really easy to make.

Super easy and tastes good, cooked in 50 minutes.

My go to easy banana bread recipe. I reduce the sugar and substitute coconut when making for weight conscious family

Not cooked yet. Fantastically easy to make.

Super easy to make and tasted delicious! I reduced the sugar and used an extra banana as they were quite small and it worked a treat!

Mine only needed 40ish min so keep watch on the oven

Was great but I added a little milk as the batter was a bit dry

Best banana loaf I have ever tasted and so easy to make, absolutely moorish, moist and scrumptious. I highly recommend you try it for yourself, 5 stars

Very easy, tasty banana loaf. Would probably reduce sugar amount next time tho.

It’s so yum! We used 4 bananas instead of three to make it more dense. Goes down well with the family!

Great easy recipe, first time I made it I stuck to ingredients listed, from then on I have added 2 tsp Cinnamon, 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots, 1/4 cup mixed peel, 1/4 cup walnuts. Also decreased sugar to just a small half cup. Awesome, easy and everyone enjoys it.

This is my go to recipe!!!! Perfect every time!!!! The kids love it when I add choc chips too.

Quick & brilliant, one of my staples

It needed a bit of milk as too dry.
Cooked out well tho

I'm going to try this recipe - but I wager that it will take
less than 50 min to bake.

Very good recipe.

Beautiful recipe. It was moist.

Easy and delicious. Threw together in less than 5 and only 1 bowl to wash.

It looks Supercalifragilisticexpialidociously delish!

Amazingly easy.Yum yum. Thanks for this wonderful recipe. A bowl and a wooden spoon is all you need.

So easy tastes great

Awesome easy recipe. I like one bowl throw in everything recipes. It smells & tastes great. Just a pity won't last here. ♥️

So quick and easy! My go to recipe!

Well made this in an hour..but added in a bit of milk & grated orange with nuts on top. But turned out fine. I tried half slice with butter...blinked and it was all eaten by family. So easy in the one bowl too. Wish Id taken a photo before it got eaten. Easy quick bake if you need to bring somethg to a party.

Fabulous. This is a lovely moist loaf that doesn't dry out. I only had 2 bananas but that still worked.

Super easy and tasty. Only one bowl. Problem is loaf is eaten in 5mins in a house of hungry boys so need to keep making them.

Great recipe! Easy and delicious.

Used so many times now, tastes good with a teaspoon of cinammon and some walnuts!

Quick, easy, and delicious! Not much mess either.
