Ingredients

For the loaf cake base

For the icing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Grease and line a 2lb/900g loaf tin with a long strip of baking parchment. To make the loaf cake batter, beat the butter and sugar with an electric whisk until light and fluffy. Add the bananas in a few chunks and beat in with the eggs, flour, almonds, baking powder and milk until smooth – the whisk will mash the bananas. Stir in the pecans, then scrape into the tin. Bake for 45-50 mins until golden, risen and a skewer poked in comes out clean. Cool in the tin, then lift out.

  • STEP 2

    Beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla. Spread on top of the cooled cake and scatter with more chopped pecans
