Preheat oven to 180 degrees / Gas 4.  Line a cake tin with baking parchment.
Whisk the oil, egg and sugar together.  Whisk the sliced bananas into the mixture. Fold in the rest of the cake ingredients.

Pour the thick batter into the tin. Bake for 30 – 40 minutes or until a metal skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

I forgot to measure how much icing sugar I used!  I would guess at 2 or 3 tablespoons. Add a few drops of vanilla to the icing sugar and stir, add tiny amounts of water until you have the consistency you want, so that it will run a little but stay mostly on top of the cake.

I’m waiting for my cake to cool completely while I’m typing this.  When its cool add the glaze and serve with a big fat cup of tea.
