Banana Bread or Cake with Lemon Icing

5 Mins50 Mins60 MinsLevel: Easy

You can’t really beat classic banana cake. My mother always put lemon icing on top, so of course that’s what I do whilst arguing with hubby who wants to put chocolate icing on top. YOU can put which ever you like choose as I have two chocolate icing recipes here and Ill share my lemon icing with you on this post.


Mash the bananas and mix with the eggs, oil and water
Add the baking mix and the baking powder and mix well
Line a 22cm tin and bake at 180 for approx 40-50 min depending on your oven. Test until a skewer comes out clean.

Basically you just combine the ingredients in a food processor and whizz till you get the desired taste and texture. Taste as you go and add more of whatever is needed.
Not very technical, but that was how I did it. It’s personal taste as to how sweet vs how tart you enjoy your icing.

Let me know how you get on!
