Recipe Tips

  • All slow cookers cook differently, so you might find yours will take longer to cook. For example, if you have a smaller slow cooker, it may take longer since the mixture will be less spread out.
  • Overripe bananas are the best to use as they will mash easily. This bread is also a great way to use up some bananas if you have too many.
  • If you know your bananas are a bit bland, you might want to increase the amount of sugar in the recipe to about one cup.
  • Doubling this recipe will add to the cooking time, I would add two to four hours onto the cooking time if you end up doing this.
  • Caster sugar is also known as superfine sugar or baker's sugar.
