Steps

Banana cake with passionfruit frosting

  1. Turn on the oven to 180°C/350°F and let it heat up. Spray a 14cm x 21cm (5½-inch x 8½-inch) loaf pan with cooking oil; use baking paper to line the base of the pan.
  2. Put the butter and sugar in a small bowl; beat with an electric mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy (page 11). Add one egg; beat until it is mixed in well. Add the other egg; beat until it is mixed in well. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Use a flour sifter to sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and mixed spice into the bowl. Add the banana, sour cream and milk; stir with a wooden spoon until the ingredients are mixed together well.
  3. Put the mixture into the loaf pan; use a spatula to spread it evenly over the base. Put the pan in the oven and bake about 1¼ hours. If the cake is getting too brown in the oven; cover the pan loosely with a piece of foil.
  4. Take the pan out of the oven; leave it for 5 minutes. Turn the cake from the pan onto a wire rack, top-side up; leave it to cool down.
  5. Meanwhile, make the passionfruit frosting. Put the butter in a small bowl; beat with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy. Add the cream cheese; beat until smooth. Add the sifted icing sugar; beat it into the butter. Stir in the passionfruit pulp.
  6. When the cake is cold, spread the frosting over the top.
