Many Thanks, Sandra, for letting me know that it's SR flour. Many thanks, Amy, for asking, as I had decided it was plain. Cannot comment on the X Factor, as I don't watch TV, but just might switch on and have it in the background tonight, out of curiosity, lol! :-))

Well, I just watched that TV programme - NO COMMENT!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And what's on now????????????? !I'm a Celeb............" Gimme a Break!!!!!!!!!!!! :-))

22 Nov, 2009

 

i hate that jungle program to david, but was glad to see the terrable twins out in xfactor woohooo

22 Nov, 2009

 

Looks lovely, but i dont like bananas, but will keep recipe. Admit the twins was terrible, but dont think they should have been bood( if i spelt it right) as they are only young kids, think they will do well in kiddies programmes.

23 Nov, 2009

 

yes your right i felt sorry for them with the crowd, they are young and were enjoying themselves, i think they will do ok after this though, like you say on kids programs carol :o))

23 Nov, 2009

 

There'll be none left now (sigh)....am a bit behind with reading the past couple of days....busy typing folklore stories.......will have to make my own.....lol.....well there'll be more for ME!!!

23 Nov, 2009

 

lol amblealice, i`ll be making another to for baz, he loves it :o)) do you write your own stories? how wonderfull

23 Nov, 2009

 

I'm late too....guess it's all gone now? :(

May-be I'll make one too so there'll be more for me...until Hubby finds it!

23 Nov, 2009

 

thats the trouble potty.. we savour while the men have to eat it all as soon as possible lol, sorry you didnt get here for a slice, i`ll have to make another :o)

23 Nov, 2009

 

This pic's only just popped up on my home page - I like bananas when they're slightly underripe, but don't like them cooked - does this cake have that peculiar cooked banana taste, or are they not noticeable as an ingredient? (You're looking at someone who can't even stand bananas and custard...)

27 Nov, 2009

 

i dont think its a strong bannana taste but its there, baz cant taste anyway lol, its a mild taste, but if you dont like bannanas then you may feel differant, i use 3 small ones in this bamboo,:o))

27 Nov, 2009

 

I might just have to try it then, but how big is that loaf tin you're using? From the pic, it looks larger than the one I have, not sure it'll fit in mine

27 Nov, 2009

 

not that big bamboo, just over 8inch by just over 4inch within the edges, so only small really, if you dont like it pass it to a neighbour, or give it the birds they will love it lol

27 Nov, 2009

 

I'll make it for when my son's here and my ex husband - they'll eat it with gusto, I imagine!

27 Nov, 2009

 

there you go then and you can try a piece, it wont be wasted, good luck :o)

Sandy .. I've just taken mine out of the oven , it looks terrific , can't wait for it to cool a little bit , I'll let you know what it is like later .. :o)

I've measured my tin it's 91/2 x 4 . I measured it with water it holds just under 3 pints ....

It smells delish..............

27 Nov, 2009

27 Nov, 2009

27 Nov, 2009

 

Just found this, will be making it as soon as the bananas go off.......it looks scrummy...

29 Nov, 2009

 

thanx dotty it is very tastey, i ate all my callories all in an hour with this lol but what the hell heheh :o))

29 Nov, 2009

 

Oh calories, tell me about it - whenever I do that (and I do it often, greedy pig, me) I just don't have any dinner to compensate. No wonder my cholesterol's so high...

29 Nov, 2009

 

We've just made our second one! Put blueberries in the first, sultanas in the second - we preferred the berries. Many Thanks! :-))

29 Nov, 2009

 

What does everyone think about having a recipe section on the site?

29 Nov, 2009

 

I think there is one already Bamboo? Sure I've seen one somewhere....:)

29 Nov, 2009

 

Well I just checked at the bottom of the page under R, and generally, but can't find one - I've written to the Site Gods anyway - I'm sure they'll tell me if there is one already.

29 Nov, 2009

 

Found it Bamboo...under "R", as "Recipes from the garden..."

29 Nov, 2009

 

sorry you have choleserol probs, makes it harder to eat what you like i guess bamboo,
glad your enjoying the loaf david, try walnuts yummy :o)
i like the recipe section, its great

29 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks crazydi, found it - missed it completely first time I looked.

I have some frozen Blueberries from the garden, I will be trying them in the next one ........ I'm sure we will all have our own favourite .. :o) ..
I wonder what a handful of coconut would be like with the banana , theres so many combinations to try :o)

29 Nov, 2009

 

love coconut to amy, like you say we can add what we like, all trial and error :o)

29 Nov, 2009

 

There is a page for recipes, folks. I just took this on, so would like you let me know whenever you find one on GOY, or, add some for it (best if the recipes have inngredients which can come from our gardens). Yes, will try walnuts, Sandra, which was the original recipe I was given years ago, and lost. :-))

29 Nov, 2009

 

Sanbaz just made my second one, have added dark chocolate chips with the banana, it smells wonderful, will try some tomorrow too hot to eat now!!!!

23 Dec, 2009

 

yes will look out for recipes for you david :o))
dotty thats sounds yummy with choc chips :o)) let me know what its like plez

23 Dec, 2009

 

Thanks for this recipe, I'm just printing this off Sandra, I've made and eaten 4 of Shirleytulips plum cake, delicious. This looks like it will be too, and I often have bananas over as I can buy about ten on Walsall market for £1 !! and I hate waste:-)

14 Sep, 2010

 

you wont regret it B,again, it very yummy, hope you enjoy it, think im going to be doing a bit of baking tomoz to use bananas up to ;o))

14 Sep, 2010

 

This site will make me fat:-)

14 Sep, 2010

 

lol, thats the trouble isnt it haha, to tempting ;o)

14 Sep, 2010

 

San it was delicious with the chocolate chips, must make it again the grandchildren loved it.......

14 Sep, 2010

 

glad it was a success dotty ;o))

15 Sep, 2010

 

Hi San, have just found this yummy recipe and popped it into my faves. until the bananas go brown !! Cheers.

27 Dec, 2010

 

I made one and it was lovely. The only problem is that we eat so many bananas here that they don't have time to over ripen:-( i'll just have to buy more, and the skins are, I believe, good in the compost. I always bury banana skins when planting a rose:-))

28 Dec, 2010

 

Maybe keep a few bananas especially for making a cake, Ba. good idea? I have just composted a bunch of bananas before I saw this recipe ! :~)

28 Dec, 2010

 

San, which Kenwood have you got, it looks a nice neat one and my daughter has requested one for her birthday (September!!!) Lol.

28 Dec, 2010

 

thanx Grandmage i love this cake, i get over ripe bannanas from veg shop, they sometimes have them in the back,i love bannanas and good for garden i agree bornagain,
the kenwood is a basic one but enough for me, has a couple of chopping parts, a whisk and jug attachment for soups etc to, its wasnt expensive, just says kenwood on machine and thats all i know, sorry.hope you had good xmas and looking forward to newyear ;o)

28 Dec, 2010

 

Thank you San. I will investigate the website and see what I can find. Christmas is over (phew) now and that brings spring even nearer, yipee. not long now (well I like to convince myself!) Have a Happy hogmanay !

28 Dec, 2010

 

your welcome and hope you find one, :o))
