Use black bananas. In fact, if they turn black, put bananas into freezers to keep for when you're ready to prepare. Once defrosted they will be pulp like and mix into cake batter much more easily giving you a cooked consistency like mud cake. Sometimes requires a little extra time in the oven. Don't panic - just keep testing with a tester and take out when ready. Can be iced with a chocolate ganache. Is delicious once cooled but the flavour really kicks in after 24 hours.
Used different ingredients. I added some cinnamon to this and it was gorgeous. - 12 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
Made it more kid friendly. I used 100g of sugar instead of 185g and it was still as sweet as can be. Better for the kiddies and the grownups. Great recipe! - 26 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
Altered ingredient amounts. I added about twice the amount of vanilla esscence and it still was really nice! - 08 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
