Recipe Ingredients

A new approach to an old favourite that’s well worth trying. No-one will spot it has mayonnaise in it − just remember, it has been tested with this mayonnaise and can't be guaranteed with any other brand.

  • 3/4 cup HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (about 2)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • Lemon Icing:
  • 3 Tbsp HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar

Recipe Method

  1. Place HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Mayonnaise, caster sugar, vanilla essence and bananas in a bowl, beat lightly to combine.
  2. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder. Gently fold in to the mayonnaise mixture. If the mixture is a little stiff add 1 tablespoon water.
  3. Spread into a baking paper lined 20cm round cake tin. Bake at 170°C for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  4. Cool on a wire rack. Ice with lemon icing, store in an air-tight container.
  5. Lemon Icing:  Beat HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Mayonnaise with lemon rind, sifted icing sugar and a little water, until smooth and thick.*
