I love a good banana cake. Often I make a simple banana loaf, which is pretty much perfect for any occasion. And sometimes I make banana and choc chip muffins, which are great as an afternoon snack, or for the kids’ lunch boxes. Over the long weekend we had friends coming over for afternoon tea and, along with a cheese platter, I wanted to bake a cake. I had a few bananas that were overripe which made banana cake the obvious choice. But I wanted to make it just a little bit fancier than my standard banana loaf. A friend of mine had forwarded me this recipe a while ago and I had been hankering to make this delicious honey and cinnamon buttercream icing. In this recipe she suggests making it with a carrot cake, which would be heavenly, but I thought i’d give it a go with banana cake. The result was lip-smacking amazing. Seriously, you need to make this icing. It is absolutely delicious and paired with the banana cake, the result is divine. I will write out the full recipe here for convenience but you can easily use your ‘go-to’ banana or carrot cake recipe and it’ll be perfect….
