The Banana Bit

  • 4 over ripe bananas
  • 180g caster Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 200g Plain Flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 75g melted butter

Icing (optional)

  • 400g Icing Sugar
  • 30g melted butter
  • 150g cream cheese
  • Juice from 1/4 of a small lime (or lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/ Gas 4

  2. Mash the bananas and combine with the sugar, egg and melted butter.

  3. Sieve in the flour and baking powder, mixing in as you go.

  4. Pour into a banana bread case and place in the oven for 30 minutes, check the banana bread and remove once golden and risen.

  5. Alternatively spoon into muffin cases and bake for 25 minutes, check on muffins and remove once golden and spongy.

  6. Whilst the banana bread/muffins are cooling down. Begin to make the icing.

  7. Whip together the melted butter and cream cheese. Then add 300g of the icing sugar and mix well.

  8. Then add the lime juice and vanilla extract to the mixture. After this slowly add as much as required of the the rest of the icing sugar until the icing is sweet enough and you will know the texture is ready when a flattened tea spoon of icing is turned side ways it doesn't drip off.

  9. Ice your Banana bread or Muffins once they have cooled down and add sprinkles (optional).
