Just taken my cake out of the oven....damn lack of cooling rack! Amateur! Still think it's going to be too sweet...Daisy - any suggestions for some sort of icing-scenario that might take the edge off? Smile

You'll have to wait till you try it ..........

I'm wondering if I'm understanding you correctly ..... are you actually making a Banana "cake" which would be in a round tin and generally have some kind of frosting on it or are you making Banana "bread" which is made in a 9x5x3-inch pan and is served in slices with butter on the top?

Use your wire thingy from the grill pan on top of two cans of soup for a cooling rack.

It's somewhere in between the two. It's cooked in a loaf tin, but I wouldn't serve it with butter...

Okay - then I think I'd leave well along.  Let me go and look again and see if I see anything ..... I can only think of American Frosting off hand but that is a pain in the ass to make ..

Okay - I've made this with a banana cake and it compliments it very well ..... (almonds and bananas are good together)

AMARETTO ICING

3 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon butter, softened
¼ teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon amaretto or milk

Beat cheese, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Gradually add the powdered sugar, beating well.  Stir in the amaretto or milk.  Stir in additional amaretto or milk to make a spreading consistency for cake in 13 x 9 pan or drizzling consistency for cake made in fluted pan.

Translation .............Powdered sugar is Icing Sugar.

Just had a sneaky taste - not too sweet - yay!! yay Lovely and crunchy on the outside, v moist on the inside. Could maybe benefit from another level in terms of flavour though - maybe some cinnamon/nutmeg next time?

Sounds perfect ........ thumb up

If you would like to try a Banana and Chocolate Loaf/Cake this is a lovely recipe.

NOTE ……. Use only the very best chocolate.  I use Tesco Finest Plain Cooking Chocolate which is 85% Cocoa Solids – the higher the Cocoa Solids, the better the chocolate.

Make the Ganache (Icing) for the topping - lifts it right out the ordinary .......

CHOCOLATE BANANA LOAF

5 1/2 oz butter at room temperature
5 1/2 oz light muscovado sugar
5 1/2 oz plain chocolate
2 medium bananas (3-4oz each)
3 eggs beaten
7 oz plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

ICING
3 1/2 oz plain chocolate, broken  into pieces
1 oz butter
1 3/4 oz icing sugar
1 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 150C/300F/Gas2.  Cook from cold at 130CFan.  Grease square 8 x 8-inch loose-bottomed tin or a 2 lb loaf tin and line with greaseproof paper. 
In a medium nonstick pan, gently heat the butter, sugar and chocolate till melted.  Stir well and remove from the heat.  Add the banana and eggs, sift in the flour and baking powder.  Mix to a smooth, thick batter.  Pour into tin.  Bake for 1 hour, till firm.  Remove, cool in the tin for 5 minutes, turn out and cool.
Make the icing by melting the chocolate with the butter in a nonstick pan.  Sift in the icing sugar, then stir in the milk and beat well.  Spread over the top of the cake.  Allow to set then cut into thick slices.
