• 1 ½ cup self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup soft brown sugar, tightly packed
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 ½ cup mashed ripe bananas (approx. 3 large bananas)
  • Zest from ½ an orange

  • Chocolate and Orange Frosting:
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cup icing sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa
  • Juice from approx. ½ orange
  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (bake). Grease and line the base of a 22cm cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Sift self-raising flour and baking soda into a mixing bowl. Stir in brown sugar. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add oil, beaten eggs, mashed bananas and orange zest. Mix to combine ingredients. Pour into prepared cake tin.
  3. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Leave in the tin for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool. When cold ice with chocolate and orange frosting.

Chocolate and Orange Frosting:

Cream the softened butter until pale. Beat in sifted icing sugar and cocoa adding enough orange juice until frosting is smooth and spreadable.

I love this recipe! It's really simple and tastes great. I use coconut oil and cook it for 10 mins longer than stated. I also sprinkle icing sugar on top instead of frosting as the cake is sweet enough. This is now my go-to banana cake recipe.
