  • 4 bananas medium / large
  • 1 large egg whisked
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups all purpose flour / plain flour (180g)
  • 4 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon optional
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda / bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar / icing sugar optional


  • Line a loaf pan (approx 9x5 inches) with baking parchment or a pan liner
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C / 160°C fan assisted
  • Peel the bananas, break into chunks and place in a bowl.
  • Use a fork to mash up the bananas until they are smooth and mostly lump free.
  • Add the whisked egg and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl ad the flour, sugars, cinnamon (if using) baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Use a spoon to combine.
  • Tip the wet banana mixture into the dry ingredients and use a spoon to combine until everything is thoroughly mixed together.
  • Stir in the vegetable oil.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan & place in the middle of your preheated oven.
  • Bake for 35 - 45 minutes or until the banana bread has risen and turned golden brown.
  • Once done, remove from the oven and leave in the pan for 5 minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack to cool.
  • Once cool you can add the drizzle of icing (if using)
  • Place the powdered sugar / icing sugar in a small bowl, add ½ teaspoon of warm water and stir. Add water in ¼ teaspoon increments until you have the desired consistency - you really won't need much at all! You do not want the icing to be too runny that it all runs off the edge of the loaf.
  • Drizzle the icing over the cake.
  • Enjoy and remember to track!
