    Really good recipe! I added some slightly crushed pecans and chocolate chips on top, not as part of the mixture. They burned slightly but putting aluminium foil on top halfway thru cooking time prevented them from burning too much

    It was my first time making banana bread and it came out just perfect. It tastes so good.

    The after taste is very strong!😳 The bread formed nicely but i find it hard to eat it on its own. I don’t know why it’s like this as I followed the recipe, but everything else about it is fine. It also took more than 45 mins to bake, extending all the way up to an hour even though I was using the right temperature throughout. Not sure what went wrong...

    Perfect, lovely and moist but not too sweet, next time I'm adding some dried banana and crushed nuts to sprinkle on top.

    It turned out being too thick when the flour was added. Needed to improvise with Banana Yogurt.

    I love how easy it is, and directions were easy to follow with a summary of what to watch out for. I also think one egg is enough for banana bread.
