Ingredients

1 cup Chelsea White Sugar or Chelsea Organic Raw Sugar
100g butter, melted
3 eggs
3 bananas, mashed with a fork
½ cup low fat milk
1 tsp baking soda
150ml plain or fruit yoghurt (apricot works well)
2 cups plain flour
3 tsp baking powder

Lemon Icing
375g Chelsea Lemon Flavoured Icing Sugar
1-2 Tbsp hot water
50g butter, softened

Method

Preheat oven to 160°C conventional or 140ºC fan-forced.
Grease a 21 cm round springform tin (with high sides) and line base with baking paper.
Beat sugar, melted butter and eggs until pale and creamy. Add the mashed bananas and beat well.
Heat the milk in the microwave until nearly boiling (approx. 1 min). Mix in the baking soda then stir into the banana mixture.
Add the yoghurt, flour and baking powder. Mix well and pour into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the cake is cooked in the middle and just pulling away from the edges of the tin (insert a skewer into the centre, if it comes out clean it is cooked). Cool in tin for 5 minutes then release the sides and cool on a wire rack. When cold, swirl with icing.

Lemon Icing
In a bowl mix the icing sugar with a little hot water. Add
butter and beat until light and fluffy. Add more hot water to make a softer consistency if required.

    Great cake!! It tastes better the next day.. The banana didn't really come through until it had time to rest. I also added vanilla and lemon rind to icing - awesome !

    This is all wrong, the proportion of liquid to flour is too much, resulting in wet doughy cake. It looks nothing like the picture. I have followed the recipe exactly.
