Banana Cake With Lime Juice Frosting

This moist banana cake is soooo.. easy to make!  I made one this morning and by 6.00pm this evening only crumbs were left.





Banana Cake – disappears in minutes!



  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 free range eggs (room temperature)
  • 3 small very ripe bananas mashed and warm (sit in hot water for a few seconds if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 50 mls milk
  • 1/2 cup castor sugar
  • 1 & 1/2  cups self-raising flour


  • cream butter, sugar, vanilla
  • add eggs separately, beating well
  • add mashed bananas to mixture
  • dissolve soda in milk & add flour & milk alternately
  • bake in greased spring ring cake tin at 180° C  (175° C forced fan oven)  for 30-35 mins or until cooked



  • 1 & 1/2 to 2 cups icing sugar
  • spoonfuls of hot, boiled water
  • Juice of one fresh lime
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter

Place icing sugar, butter and lime juice into glass bowl and mix.  Add only enough hot water by the spoonful then beat well together until creamy.  Add more hot water or icing sugar if needed.  Icing should be firm but easy to spread with heated knife onto cooled cake.
