Mash the banana well
Mix all ingredients (except the apple cider vinegar and baking soda) together in a mixing bowl until well-blended

Add the baking soda, do not mix
Add the apple cider vinegar

The mixture will bubble up (think volcano science project in school)
Mix well
Pour into greased baking dish

Top with crushed nuts
Drizzle the honey over the top

Bake at 375 for approximately 25 minutes or until a knife, when inserted in the center of the loaf, comes out clean

(Time depends on depth of bread loaf- can also be made into muffins or baked in a cake pan… after the first 10 minutes or so check the banana bread every few minutes to ensure that it is not overcooked)

Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before cutting
Enjoy with Kerrygold grass-fed butter!

    This is really good! The kids even liked it and I was worried they wouldn’t think it was sweet enough. But it was fantastic. I cooked it in a glass bread pan and it needed more like 35 minutes. But its great! Next time I’ll add the walnuts for sure!

    So good and super easy! Walnuts are a MUST! Absolutely making this recipe again!

    This worked well – and I didn’t have apple cider vinegar. I thought I did, got to the final stage and found I didn’t have it, so just put it in the oven anyway. I topped with lots of walnuts and a generous drizzle of honey all over. It’s yum, my son loves it. Next time I will double the bath as I put it in a cake tin (normal size) and it would be nicer thicker.

    I only used 2 eggs. I had no cinnamon. I used butter. I had no cloves.

    As you can see……the recipe is fairly figuring. Can’t wait to see how it turns out next time!

    Mine turned out pretty unappetizing. Wouldn’t make this again.

    This is moist and delicious! Made two batches and baked the two loaves at once, so I did need the extra baking time. After the recommended 25 minutes, I put a sheet of tin foil over them so they wouldn’t burn and baked another 15 minutes. Perfect! Compliments from my husband, so you know its good!
