I was wondering whether anyone would have a good recipe for one of my favourite treat which I only seem to be able to get in the US. Thanks.

You'll have to wait, it's at home. And PM me when I forget to get it to you
, but I make Aunt Marcie's banana bread and it's really really good.

My wife makes a great banana bread with chocolate chips.
Now, I have no idea where she keeps her recipes.

You'd have to convert the measurements but you can find a chart online for that. Be sure to use overripe bananas.
BANANA BREAD
3 ripe or overripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sugar
1 egg
4 Tablespoons butter (1/8 pound) melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups regular flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 325° Fahrenheit. Grease & flour an 8" loaf pan. In a alrge bowl, combine the mashed bananas, sugar, egg, melted butter & vanilla. Beat until thoroughly mixed. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda & salt. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture just until blended. Pour & scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted near teh center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack.

* 3/4 cup brown sugar

I used to hate Banana bread...until I had this recipe. Now it's my secret weapon

Moose, my recipe is similar to Smerky's except I seem to remember a half cup of plain yogurt going in, and maybe less butter, or none, not sure.
And sometimes, if I am in the mood, I add a few chocolate chips.

3 large bananas, or 4 small
1/2 cup sweet butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cups walnuts if desired

Bowl 1 crush bananas and whip(yes, whip) until very light, I whip them about 5 minutes.
The bananas will liquify, which gives this bread a very delicate texture.
When I take it out of the oven, I place foil over it and let it sit for about 1/2 hour before taking it out of the loaf pan*.

i always put in more bananas and I use 1/2 babyfood bananas and 1/2 regular. It sounds crazy - but it makes it so moist!
