I have come across this one recently but haven't tried it yet.

Aunty Woof’s BananaBread
developed after 20 years of trial and error. (one of the best.)
Mix together: 2 ripe bananas, smashed
1/4 cup orange juice1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs2/3 cup sugar
Add:1 1/2 cups flour,2 teaspoons baking powder,pinch salt
Stir in:1 cup chopped walnuts., try not to over-mix.BAKE 70 minutes in oiled loaf pan at 180 C/350°F.Let rest for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool on wire rack.
I would keep am eye on it as baking for 70 mins seems rather a long time.

Annabel Langbein's has been the most successful for me - makes a huge cake which keeps really well although I do keep mine in the fridge because of the icing and time of year

Use the usual Edmonds recipe but add a tub of natural or vanilla yoghurt.
So soft, moist and delicious.

I've got one in the oven too but didn't have sour cream so used yoghurt instead and I put a spot of pineapple oil into it.Smells delicious.
