Glazed Banana Spiced Loaf

The lemony glaze perfectly sets off the warm flavours of nutmeg and cloves in this moist banana teabread!!! (Recipe source: children's party cakes and cookies by Martha Day)


1/2 cup butter, at room temperature

3/4 cup caster sugar

2 eggs,at room temperature

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp freshly greated nutmeg

1/4 tsp mixed (apple pie) spice

1/4 tsp ground cloves

3/4 cup sour cream

1 large ripe banana, mashed

1 tsp vanilla essence

For the glaze

1 cup icing suger

1-2 table spoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 180degree C. Line a 23 x 13cm/ 9 x 5in loaf tin (pan) with baking parchment and grease the papaer.

  2. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

  3. Sift together the flour, salt baking soda, nutmeg, mixed spices and cloves. Add to the butter mixture and stir to combine well.

  4. Add the sour cream, banana and vanilla extract, and mix to just blend. Pour this mixture into the prepared tin.

  5. Bake until the top springs back when touched lightly, about 45-50 minutes. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Turn out on to a wire rack.

  6. To make the glaze, combine the icing sugar and lomon juice until smooth, then stir until smooth. Place the cooled loaf on a rack set over a baking sheet. Pour the glaze over the loaf and allow to set.
