    Made this with whole wheat flour. I used Thompson raisins as I didn’t have golden raisins, and I used rum instead of bourbon. There are no spices in this banana bread and I thought it might be a bit boring but it was quite delicious! I wanted to try the chocolate variation that’s added at the end of the recipe, but I wasn’t sure about using chocolate chips with raisins. It seems to get great reviews on the Nigella site, though, so it’s worth trying. Edited 9.2.21: Tried the chocolate version and it's wonderful. Used Trader Joe's 72% chocolate. Baked perfectly in one hour.

    This banana bread is outstanding. Always moist, so delicious. Have used bourbon or rum and both work really well. Highly recommend this recipe.
