    Will definitely use this recipe again!  -  04 Jul 2011


    Used different ingredients. I added 100g of raisins and 50g of cashew to this recipe. Came out very well. Moist and soft and delicious! I topped this with butter cream icing but it would have been good without the icing as well.  -  04 Jul 2011


    Used different ingredients. Delicious, I added a packet of chocolate chips. Wonderful in combination with the banana!  -  24 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
