Recipe by ellie3763
READY IN: 1hr 5mins
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Preheat oven to 170C (340F). Grease a cake tin.
  • Beat the butter with the brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and continue to beat until smooth. Then beat through the mashed up banana; don't worry if there are some banana chunks in there.
  • Combine the wholemeal flour, ground almonds & baking powder. Fold through the banana mixture until smooth. Then fold through the milk until all smooth.
  • Spoon mixture into a greased cake tin and bake at 170C (340F) for around 40-45 minutes. Check it at the 30 minute mark cause you don't want to over cook this. The top should be nice and golden.
  • For the frosting, simply whisk together all ingredients until nice and smooth. Add a bit more ground almonds to thicken it up if you like. Spread over cooled cake.
