    I tried this recipe and it all went so well until I put it in the halogen oven. I had to put the tin foil over the cake after 20 minutes otherwise it would have burnt. I took it out after 50 minutes in total and it was still uncooked in the middle. Very sad. I think I’m going to try the same recipe but in a normal oven.
    I like the addition of greek yoghurt and maple syrup, it makes it a little different from other banana bread recipes that I’ve tried.

      Hi Esme, thank you for bringing this to my attention. Halogen ovens obviously vary in cooking times and efficiency. I have changed the recipe to cook at 200C with tin foil over the cake. I’m glad you liked the greek yoghurt and maple syrup addition, and hope this hasn’t put you off trying other users’ recipes on here.
