Peanut Butter and Banana Loaf with Peanut Frosting

Makes: one large loaf

Preparation time: approx 25 minutes, cooking time: 1 hour

Ingredients

For the loaf:

2 large ripe bananas
275ml fresh orange juice
125g Duerr’s Crunchy Peanut Butter
150g self-raising flour
125g wholemeal self-raising flour
125g demerara sugar
½tsp mixed spice
1 egg, beaten
1 tbs sunflower or light olive oil

For the frosting:

2 tbs Duerr’s Smooth Peanut Butter
4tbs icing sugar, sifted
3-4 tbs milk

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/Gas 4
  2. Mash the bananas on a plate using a fork then transfer to a bowl and combine with the peanut butter. Stir in the orange juice
  3. Weigh the dry ingredients into a bowl then add the banana and peanut mixture, egg and oil and stir quickly until combined but do not over-mix
  4. Tip into a 900g/2lb loaf tin lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 50 minutes, turning half way through cooking. Test that the cake is done by inserting a skewer into the cake. If it comes out clean, it’s ready, if there is some mixture stuck to the skewer, leave it to cook for another 5-10 minutes. Leave to cool completely before topping
  5. Once cooled, make the frosting by mixing the ingredients together. Spread over the top of the loaf and cut into chunky slices to serve
