    Didn’t really work out as planned, look more like a flat cake rather than bread and the contents were no where near similar to breath however it still tasted delicious, would recommend but not for like a special occasion as the result may not end up looking as great.

    Cake turned out absolutely beautiful! It’s wonderfully spongey and moist. Full of flavour. I made a few adjustments trading 75g honey to maple syrup (whilst keeping 75g honey) and didn’t have an extra banana for the topping (might mean the oats don’t stick so well) so sprinkled some brown sugar/cinnamon mix under the oats.

    Had to improvise with a different cereal, as couldn’t get recommended one. Also only had 2 bananas so didn’t add banana on the top. This being said it was a very nice texture and worked really well. Cooked it for 55mins
