Made in a 6 litre SC – no change to ingredients – 1hour 45 minutes – fantastic! Added cinnamon/sugar topping approx 10 minutes before taking out then sprinkled the leftovers on while cooling. Delicious recipe thank you Taylah.

Had some bananas that needed to be used, so decided this was the recipe I was going to use!! So simple & easy, cooked perfectly.. I made a butter icing to top it off & everyone loved it!!! πŸ€—

I tried this recipe today using Gluten Free flour. I used 2 cups of flour and found that was plenty. Cooking time was perfect and cake is delicious. I iced it with butter icing and my husband is raving about it. Thanks Paulene. πŸ™‚

I have very large slow cooker , can I put in a cake tin in the slow cooker? Would this still work?


July 7, 2021

I decided to make this after seeing the recipe, 2 hours ago. I added shredded coconut, instead of choc bits. It is beautiful, & will become a re
gular. Definitely a 5 star for me!.

I made this for the first time today. The bananas I used were huge and I didn’t think to account for that. But 3 1/2hrs later in my all-in-one set to slow cooker mode and it’s PERFECT. It weighs 1.6kg!!
I’ll be making another tonight with smaller bananas as I was gifted a 1kg tin of sweetened condensed milk that needs to be used. Lol

This is so easy and absolutely scrumptious. Soft, moist and light. I added some whole white choc melts just because I could. My children loved it. I said to my daughter, “This is good.” She said, “Are you kidding me! This is GREAT!” I am so excited. The first cake iny SC to work for me. Thrilled. Will definitely make this again.

I have just made this cake, as l was interested how it would turn out, l had it cooking for 2 and half hours, but still the same colour as it was when l put it in, but it was cooked, so l put it in the over regards gas mark 6 for 15 minutes to brown it off, how is it some of your reviews say it burns, would of thought that was impossible.
I have been making fruit cakes for years in my slow cooker.
The banana cake however was a lovely flavour and not to sweet.

Most use a standard 6L cooker Kevin but you could make it in a smaller one no worries, it will just be thicker so need more time πŸ™‚


February 15, 2020

What size cooker did you use

Virginia Reece

1st time doin this cake in sc took a bit longer than stated looks delicous

Chris Freeman

What a little gem. I used evaporated milk, some sunflower seeds + coconut and right at end sprinkled with dark sugar. Delicious by itself but loved it with honey. Thumbs up from all ages too.

1st time making this banana bread in slowcooker proud of myself took a but longer than required

Sweeteened condensed milk


January 20, 2020

i put a paper baking case in my sc or I sometimes put a silicone loaf tin i get 2 in there.


July 1, 2019

Trying this for the first time today. It’s been in for 2 hours 20 so far but still sticky on the middle so going to leave it a bit longer. Can’t wait to taste it though as I never bake so if this works, it could be my new favourite thing!!

I believe it would be too small

Lorraine Barber

June 1, 2019

Could you make this in the 1.5ltr S.C. Or would it be too small ?

Let us know how you go Sam πŸ™‚


February 1, 2019

I’m going to give it ago with gf SR flour 😬


January 28, 2019

Loved this. Made it today for the first with ripened bananas. So cheap and easy. Will DEFINITELY be making this again, we always have bananas Ready to be baked πŸ‘Œ

Delicious and sooo easy!
I tried it with caramel condensed milk which I highly recommend. If you don’t have self raising flour you can use plain flour with 5 tsp baking powder.


September 24, 2018

Once our bananas have ripened enough if master 4 doesn’t eat them all before hand going to give this cake a crack.


September 15, 2018

Omg! Amazing! This was my first time baking in the slow cooker and it was so easy and tasty! Will definitely be making again.


August 7, 2018

Found this recepie a great start for a novice at baking in the slow cooker. I cooked it for about 2.5hrs as wasn’t sure but could probably have got away with 2 hours. I also added dark and white choc chips. When I try it again I all thinking walnuts!!! Great recipe

Love this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing.


July 25, 2018

Loved it but mine got a bit burnt on one side so may reduce the cooking time . But it’s a winner from all of us here ! Could just be my slow cooker may cook too high . But tastes delicious !

Yes a smaller cooker will make it higher πŸ™‚


July 2, 2018

What is the best size cooker to do this Banana Bread in? I used the 5ltr and it came out great but not real high- would it be better in the 3ltr? My grand daughter wants to know “Is it fattening”?


May 5, 2018

I’m thinking of giving it a try but using Fejoa instead of banana. Would do anything different


April 23, 2018

Tried this today after wanting to try it for months. Sadly no one in my family really liked it. Maybe an alternative to the condensed milk might make a difference for us. Added a weird flavour.

I’m pretty sure looking at the picture this one was done in a 6L πŸ™‚


March 11, 2018

What size slow cooker is.this recipe for?
I have a 6 ltr slow cooker.

Jaylee Williams

January 31, 2018

Think I undercooked it by like 5 or 10minutes. It was in for 2hrs 10minutes.
But still tasted great! Would go well with tea or coffee ^_^
Round slow cooker turned it as suggested just in case didn’t want it burning on one side if it did happen to have a hot spot. Also sprayed the baking paper as suggested came off perfectly.

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

If it’s a round cooking pot in your slow cooker it’s just a hot spot on one side
Rotate the bowl during cooking every 15mins or so and you won’t have any burnt spots πŸ™‚


September 27, 2017

I have used this recipe a few times now but it appears that every time I make it one side of the cake is always burnt..tjis happen to any one else.

Spray the paper with non stick spray first πŸ™‚


July 25, 2017

Made this heaps everytime delicious but I have to cut the bottom off because baking paper sticks to it everytime anyone know how I can fix this best recipe

Elizabeth Gomez

June 18, 2017

Yum! BUT… probably needed longer as it’s still quite stodgy in the middle (there was NO way mr 3 1/2 was going to wait any longer though!!). Will definitely make it again!

Making now hope it works out doing it in my 1.5ltr sc


May 10, 2017

Its to easy. Can’t get over how easy but very delightful this cake is & my kids can t wait for it to come out of the slow cooker. Have cooked this 4 times now & have got other people making it to.


April 25, 2017

We have been making this every Tuesday for years now all our big family of five love this with obviously added choccy chips!!


April 20, 2017

Nice flavour but not really a cake- far too doughy and dense and texture not enjoyable


March 24, 2017

I have made this a few times now, always forget to comment! I didnt have self-raising flour last time, so I added baking powder + plain flour…. and that was the first time it was “dry” – but it was still gobbled up anyway!! 17 month old loved it.

Is there anything you can use instead of condensed milk ?

You’ll be a master at it in now time πŸ™‚

Everyone in my house loves this banana bread, it never lasts long xx


December 1, 2016

I only have 3 bananas. Would I get away with using just the three and just say a cup of frozen raspberries? πŸ™‚

Belinda Sullivan

November 30, 2016

This was my first cake in the slow cooker 😊
I added frozen blueberries…..
So easy and simple !!!
Going to put lemon zest icing on top πŸ‹
Don’t think it will last long πŸ‘

I made this in a bundt tin inside the SC. (Sitting on egg rings) Was delicious.

Haley Nelson

Love it, so simple and easy. I added choc chips to the mixture aswell.


June 10, 2016

Can you use ladyfingers?


June 5, 2016

Karen you could add anything to flavour your bread to your liking. I always add walnuts its delicious


May 28, 2016

Love it πŸ™‚ You can also add passionfruit (we have a vine so are always looking at ways to include them) this works really well.


April 6, 2016

Has anyone tried adding walnuts? Would it work?


March 19, 2016

Love this cake and so easy to make, I use extra greaseproof paper on the bottom so it doesn’t burn x


February 14, 2016

Cook this all the time it is closer to 1 hr 40 after that it burns, I’m sure all slow cookers are different just keep an eye on it.


January 26, 2016

I can vouch this was an absolute hit for my two boys and daughter. Be sure to check cooking towards the end with a skewer. If it comes out clean you are done. If you are looking for a simple, sweet, slow cooked cake with that banana punch…. Look no further!


January 25, 2016

Very easy to make, made with my 3yr old. Added dark chocolate drops! Cant wait to taste the result πŸ™‚


January 15, 2016

Really easy recipe which tasted delicious. I added sultanas (soaked in a bit of water first) and it really added to it. Massive hit with the kids!
