We’ve all been there. You buy a bunch of bananas with such good intentions. Morning smoothies, packed lunches, etc. And then you oversleep every day with no time for breakfast or you spend too much time at your boyfriend or girlfriend’s place and you return to find your bananas resemble something rather unspeakable and less than appealing. DO NOT DESPAIR! These bananas are the BEST kind of bananas for this recipe! So don’t bin them – bake them! Into this delicious Crunchy Pecan Topped Banana Bread.

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of ground cloves

60g dark soft brown sugar
2 big or 3 small VERY ripe bananas

    Could you use just light brown sugar?

  12. Max Fitnesstraining says:

    You peel the bananas and put them in a zip lock bag before you put them in the freezer, I do this all the time. I also use frozen over ripe bananas for smoothies.

    It's crazy to see the difference in 4 years … I just watched Dane & Sally bake birthday cake cookies until I remembered I had banana that needed to be used up & wondered if Jemma had a good banana recipe.

    I roast my bananas so I don't have to wait for them to brown. Adds an amazing caramelly like flavor.

    Jemma I love your recipes and I'm almost mastered most of them, even my family loves them but the problem that I gained weight since last year and I don't want to cut the baking since I love eating ur recipes and it's my talent now and my passion, could you please tell me what is ur lifestyle eating routine. Thanks a lot

  20. Nayera Alhossary says:

    I made this yesterday and it came out so moist and flavourful. I added slightly more banana's because they were just so so black and didn't want to throw them away and it made it even more moist. Oh, and the entire loaf was eaten by 3 adults that couldn't get enough! Thank you
