Banana Cake

This recipe is one from my Mum. She used to make it sometimes when I was younger and it's still just as delicious. It's a great way to use up bananas that have gone past the stage of being nice to eat.

You will need:

85g Butter
85g Caster Sugar
1 Large Banana
Squeeze of Lemon Juice
1 Large Egg
115g Self-raising Flour 

Icing: Icing sugar and water/lemon juice.

Equipment: Mixing bowl, wooden spoon, small bowl, fork, cake tin.


1.Cream the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.

2. Mash the banana in a small bowl using a fork.

3.Add the mashed banana to the butter and sugar with the lemon juice and mix well.

4.Beat the egg into the mixture.

5.Fold the flour into the mixture until just mixed.

6.Pour the mixture into a cake tin (I'm using a 2lb Loaf Tin).

7. Cook in a preheated oven at 190°C for 35 minutes.

7.Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack. When cooled completely top the cake with icing. (To make the icing mix 6tbsp of icing sugar with a very small amount of water, lemon juice or a mixture of both. Add the liquid to the icing suagr a few drops at a time until it just reaches a consistency which can be poured.)
