Banana and Blueberry cake with cream cheese icing.

Each week, hubby and I like to have something baked in the house, ready to eat for afternoon tea or take to work. The past week, it's been a very delicious Banana and Blueberry cake.


 
I followed the recipe for my chocolate banana cake, but left out the cocoa and added 3/4 cup of blueberries. I also iced it using my homemade cream cheese, and it was oh so delicious!
 
 
You will need:
 
1 1/2-2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 egg
1 cup rapadura sugar
1 tbs honey
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
pinch salt
1 1/2 cups spelt flour (or normal flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
 
Throw everything in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Pour into a greased cake tin, or patty pans, and bake for 30-35 min at 180C or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack before icing.
 
Honey Vanilla Cream Cheese Icing:
1/3-1/2 cup homemade cream cheese or store bought
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs honey, or to taste
 
Mix the icing ingredients in a bowl until smooth and creamy and the flavour is to your liking.
 
 
Spread onto your cooled cake. Cut a generous slice for yourself and enjoy!
 
 
 
Thanks for reading,
