Ingredients

  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups (225g) self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Betty Crocker Creamy Deluxe Vanilla Frosting, to serve
  • Sliced banana, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 10cm x 20cm (base measurement) loaf pan and line the base and 2 long sides with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Beat in the egg. Add the mashed banana and stir until well combined.

STEP 2

Add the flour and milk, in alternating batches, and stir to combine. Whisk the bicarbonate of soda with 1 tbs hot water in a bowl. Add to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan. Smooth surface. Bake for 50-55 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

STEP 3

Place the cake on a serving platter. Spread with the frosting and decorate with sliced banana.

Serve with ground nutmeg
