Lemon-Banana Cake

This is such an easy cake to make, and I love how you just mix the dry, the whet ingredients together and your done. We Icelanders traditionally make the banana bread more like bread that you eat with butter but I actually like this twist on it. Quick and easy...thats how I do it!


120 gr all-purpose flour
140 gr whole wheat flour
125 gr brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
100 gr dark chocolate
80 ml olive oil/sunflower oil
2 large eggs, beaten
3 large bananas
60 ml yogurt, 3%
1 tsp vanilla extract
zest of one lemon

For the glaze
80 gr brown sugar
50 gr powdered sugar
juice of one lemon

To make the glaze: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and let it sit for at least 45 minutes.

1. Set oven to 180 C

2. Mix the dry ingredients well together in a large bowl.

3. Mix the whet ingredients well together in a another bowl.

4. Pour the whet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a spatula. Do not over-mix!

5. Bake for approx. 60 min. Its better not to overcook the cake as you want that soft middle. Let it cool before you pour on the glaze.
