    So easy too make, and consistency is just right.. It also tastes heavenly. Uses up the old brown bananas and when baking makes the house smells just like my Grannies used too.

    A great recipe. Easy to use even for a novice like me and my 1year old. We added sultanas. Delicious and moist. Thank you!

    Excellent thank you. I baked this with the bananas and sultanas and it went in minutes. Will need to do more when the house is empty and I can then freeze it. Tastes wonderful

Would you tweak this banana bread with sultanas recipe? If so, how?

e.g. Add half a chopped onion, use less butter, shake not stir...
