One-pot Banana Cake with Spicy Chai Icing

One-pot Banana Cake with Spicy Chai Icing

This is my go to recipe when we have bananas that are just too far gone for the kids n hubby to eat without complaining, but are perfectly fine to eat. TBH, I think they just complain so I do make this cake 😛.

It can be done quickly with minimal dirtying of dishes – hence, one of my favourite recipes 🙂
