Banana Loaf Cake


140g/5oz of butter softened (salted or unsalted)
140g/5oz caster sugar
140g/5oz self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
2 large eggs beaten
2 very ripe bananas
50g/2oz icing sugar
2lb loaf tin greased and lined
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)


Heat oven to 180c, 160c fan, gas mark 4 and grease and line a 2lb loaf tin
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add one egg and a little flour and mix well and repeat until eggs and flour used.
Add the baking powder and mix well
In a separate bowl mash up 2 bananas with a fork then stir into the cake batter until well combined
Pour into the cake tin, level and 30 cook for around 30 to 40 mins. If it starts to look brown on top that’s ok as banana loaf cake is naturally darker from the sugar in the bananas. You can cover with foil if you feel getting to brown. To check if cooked put a skewer down the centre and if it comes out clean it’s ready.
Cool in the tin for 10 minutes then remove and place onto a cooling rack
In bowl add the icing sugar 2 or 3 tsp of water until you get a runny icing
Drizzle the icing over the top of the cake and leave to set
