140g/5oz butter, softened, plus extra for the tin
140g/5oz caster sugar
2 large eggs
140g/5oz self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
50g/2oz icing sugar
handful dried banana chips, to decorate
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking parchment.
Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add the eggs with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder and bananas. Pour into the tin and bake for about 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a wire rack.
Mix the icing sugar with 2-3 tsp water to make a runny icing. Drizzle the icing across the top of the cake and decorate with banana chips.
