Cook Time: 1 Hour

Bread Batter
2 cups cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp NOMU Sea Salt
100g unsalted butter, softened
½ cup caster sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup buttermilk

½ cup buttermilk
3 cups icing sugar
1 pump NOMU Vanilla Paste
NOMU Egyptian Dukkah, to serve



Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and lightly flour a 20cm loaf tin.

Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt into a mixing bowl. In a separate large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together using a whisk or handheld blender. Add in the banana, lemon juice, eggs and buttermilk and mix to combine. Using a spatula, fold in the dry ingredients until well combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and place in the oven. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, prepare the icing by whisking together the buttermilk, sugar and NOMU Vanilla Paste to make a glossy pourable frosting.
Once the loaf is completely cool, pour over the frosting, using a zig zag motion.

Finish off with a sprinkling of NOMU Egyptian Dukkah.
