Re: Bonanza Banana Bread

I tried this recipe posted recently and made a mistake which turned 
out to be a great-tasting one!
Presumably our South African bananas are larger or squishier than 
yours, because I ended up with a very runny mixture.  However, 
undaunted, I put a clove in it, put it in the oven, and ended up with the most delicious 
hot pudding.  It had a creamy filling with a bread-like topping - 
almost like a steamed pudding. I guess you could add in a couple of 
extra bananas to get the same effect.
 With winter on our doorsteps, this is definitely going 
to become a favourite with my family.
