This Banana Cake recipe is a winner with my family. My daughter took some to work for her friends to try, now i get a regular order, mam make some more, delicious.

7 November 2010 From: Banana Cake Lover
Yummy Cake Thank You.

19 November 2010 From: Marciel
It's my first time to bake a banana cake from your recipe, quite easy and practical. My husband and my only daughter loves it so much and they ask me to make this cake more often! Thanks a lot.

24 November 2010 From: Cake Nut
Have made this cake a few times now. It's fantastic, very popular with all the family.  It comes out very well with wheat free, gluten free flour. I've doubled the amount of oil because I like cakes that are more moist and I've added vanilla.  A great recipe. Thanks.

2 December 2010 From: Jacks
Quick and easy to make.... lovely and moist will keep recipe :O)

We are from Trinidad and Tobago and we found this amazing recipe out of this world!! We added some peanut butter though. We though this made it extra special. Definitely recommend it to the whole wide banana cake world! Peace.

5 December 2010 From: Ambika
I like this banana cake n thanks for this lovely recipe. Because of this recipe can make cake.

9 December 2010 From: H.
Just a bit of pedantry - soft brown sugar is not Demerara; it's Muscovado! Demerara is large granules of raw sugar, otherwise known as coffee sugar. I suppose either would work, but the taste/texture will be slightly different.
Comment: Pedantic maybe, true definitely. We have amended the recipe to remove the reference to soft brown sugar which would, as you say, be Muscovado. We used Demerara sugar not Muscovado. We also updated our sugar article because a bit of research indicated that sugar labelled simply "brown sugar" is in fact white sugar with molasses added. The plot thickens!

Found this recipe a year ago. Its was my very first Banana cake that I've ever made, it is very easy to follow the recipe, simple method but it's fabulous result. This is 1 of my favourite cake recipes at all time.

3 October 2010 From: John Monteiro
I am new to baking, as a retired person I had to find a hobby, I started with this banana cake recipe of yours! So easy to make, thanks for the tips, and the cake turned out a treat! Thanks again!

16 October 2010 From: Sprout
I live in China and have never done any baking before, I followed the steps and made the first cake in my life, it is so delicious and so easy to make. The only thing I am not sure is the banana cake I buy from the shops is more moist than what I've made. Maybe it's because I baked it for a bit too long? Maybe I need to put more olive oil in next time. Anyway, great recipe and thank you!

17 October 2010 From: Sarah Kirk
I wanted to make some cakes with my daughter and came across this recipe and had all the ingredients in the cupboard so we set to making it. Everyone loved it and was asking for me to make it again straight away.
Thanks a lot I've actually make something all 9 kids and me and my husband like.

Really truly lovely, I think it was the most successful cake I have ever made.

From: JoJo
6 February 2010
I love this banana cake recipe, but I find that one has to keep it in the oven for quite a bit longer than 50 minutes. I sometimes add a bit of rum essence, very tasty!

From: Maria
7 February 2010
This is one of my top recipes! Instead of walnuts (which I like but no-one else does). I add luxury fruit mix and end up with cherries and pineapples, sultanas and raisins on top of the bananas - very exotic! Also, I sometimes substitute up to half of the banana weight with grated carrot because I love carrot cake too. Just gorgeous!!!!

From: Jo Moon
9 February 2010
I tried to make banana cake, the way i thought u made it so I used standard ingredients for vicky sponge and whisked in 1 mashed banana as well. Took 40 minutes to cook but tasted lovely. Next time i will try this way and let you all know the difference ...minus the walnuts ...eurgh yuk !!

From: Speedy Chefs

I made this banana cake last week (and another is cooking in the oven now!) & loved it: so moist & easy to make. I avoid recipes using oil as it never works out right so this is perfect.

From: Linda

The recipe states that you use Demerara sugar if you wish, but this is a crunchy sugar, rather than a soft brown sugar.  Has anyone made it with the Demerara sugar, and, if so, what were the results like?

From: Sarah

This is really nice simple recipe that my 3 year old son enjoyed doing, although I must admit we added raisins and white chocolate too. Yummy.

Lovely recipe - but I wish it was printable, without having to waste ink printing all the stuff I don't need.
ANSWER: Your wish is our command! There is now a printer friendly version. See the link to it at the top (nearly) right of the page. Other recipes will also have this facility soon. Thanks very much for your helpful comments. Sue.

Just finished baking this banana cake loaf, its delicious! Especially with a bit of chocolate spread on when it's fresh out the oven. Many thanks :)

I like the use of oil in this banana cake recipe. I even replaced the 5oz butter with hemp oil  as it makes it healthier, it is very low in all the bad stuff and tastes really nutty. I also used a sugar substitute for fewer calories, and replaced a quarter of the flour with bran flour for
lower GI and more roughage. Added 5 mins to cooking time due to extra density of flour.

From: Simon
16 December 2009
Awesome banana cake! First time I made it, just chucked it all together - came out moist and delicious - eaten in a 4 of us, not just me!

From: Mo Bozier
21 December 2009
I have used this recipe over and over and it is consistently good. I play around with the recipe too, (ie I use cinnamon and a bit of ginger, and I crush brazil nuts, and finely chop some figs in. I also use organic flour and maybe because of the tin I use it takes about one and a quarter hours to cook. Friends love it and so do my boys - thanks for the recipe xx

From: Carey
23 December 2009
The banana cake takes a lot longer to cook in my oven that stated, about an hour and a quarter as suggested above. First time I've made it and it tastes delicious!

From: Claire

When I went shopping at the Whole Foods Market at High Street Kensington, I bought a lovely banana cake made by a small family run business, called Respect Organics But this cake was kept on a freezer. I do make cakes at home, and thought I will try and make one banana cake at home. I liked your recipe, and will try and make one. The only thing I did not like is the method of preparation. I always use a blender,
which gives excellent results. Also I did not like the idea of using olive oil or cooking oil. A good creamy butter will do. In my cake making I use whole meal brown flour, and walnuts. This is very healthy. Many thanks
