  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
  2. Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking parchment so the loaf doesn’t stick. You can also use a release cake spray or a liner.
  3. Cream the 140g softened butter and the 140g caster sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add 2 beaten large eggs with a little (2tbsp) of the 140g flour. 
  4. Fold in the remaining flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 2 mashed bananas (nuts too if using) and pour in the tin.
  5. Bake for about 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean.
  6. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a wire rack.
  7. For the drizzle: Mix 50g icing sugar with 2-3 tsp water to make a runny icing. Drizzle the icing across the top of the cake and decorate with a handful of banana chips or chopped banana.
