  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°f, gas mark 4). Lightly grease a 25x11cm (1ox4.5inch) loaf tin with butter.

  2. 2

    Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl using an electric hand whisk until smooth. Add one of the eggs and beat in well, then add the second and continue to beat well. Sift in half the flour with the baking powder and mix well. Mix in the milk then the remaining flour.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 125g Butter (unsalted) softened
    • 175g Unrefined dark muscovado sugar
    • 2 Egg(s) (free range)
    • 300g Plain white flour
    • 1tsp Baking powder
    • 150ml Milk (whole)
  3. 3

    Fold the mashed bananas into the mixture along with the vanilla extract, poppy seeds and golden sultanas. Then tip the mixture into the loaf tin and level to the top with a spatula.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 3 Banana(s) ripe, peeled and mashed
    • 1tsp Vanilla extract

    Bake in the preheated oven for around 1 hour 15 minutes until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean and not sticky. Cover the top with foil if it starts to brown too quickly. Allow to cool in the tin for at least 20 minutes before turning out.

  5. 5

    For the topping, cream the butter and sift the icing sugar in using an electric hand whisk, mixing together until creamy and fluffy. Spread over the cake and garnish with the banana chips and dust with icing sugar.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150g Butter (unsalted) softened
    • 300g Unrefined golden icing sugar
    • Banana chips handful
