    Very easy to follow, basically threw it all together. No instruments to use so was guessing with with a mug.

    This is a true winner here! I regret...very much...NOT making more loaves of this, but I will be making more without a doubt! It's the first loaf of bread that I've made that didn't fall in the center. :D And, yum! Next time, some allspice or cinnamon, but other than that, it's right on the money. I used skim milk and margarine and added in some chopped walnuts, just in case anyone else has only these on hand. Worked like a charm. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Chelsea!

    Excellent banana loaf - i cheated and chucked it all in together, it came out brilliant and then I added the honey which added a great sticky crust.

    Very easy recipe to follow and make. My husband is loving me cutting slices (with butter spread on them) for his lunches.

    Nice and easy, I made it with my 3 yr old. We addded a tsp of cinnamon to the dry ingredients. Then when it came out of the oven pricked he top and brushed with lots of clear honey. Delicious!

I love cooking and enjoying finding and trying out new recipes! Nothing makes me more happier than to see people enjoying the foods I've cooked! I currently live in New Zealand, but was born in America and I have lived in Singapore too. So I've pretty much traveled the world.
