    Lovely and moist. I put the chopped dates and orange juice into the micowave for a couple of minutes on low. Great recipe.

    I sprinkled muscavado sugar on top and added some walnuts on top.

    A tasty banana bread that develops a really yummy gold crust. While we enjoyed the same day it was made I'm looking forward to trying it aged a day also. I made this as written and it was almost too sweet for my taste but no one else said anything so it I%u2019m sure it was just me. Thanks for the post.

    A beautiful, dense and moist loaf that is packed with flavour. The orange zest and juice are great additions, and next time I'll add 50-60 grams of chopped crystallised ginger. Hubby took it for the afternoon tea break at the local tennis club and everyone loved it. By the way, I used ripe bananas that I had tossed in the freezer a few weeks ago. Thanks for posting. Yum, yum!
