Tina's carrot, banana & pineapple cake

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • Mix together the flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt in a large bowl. Add the sugar, oil, eggs and bananas, and mix well with a wooden spoon. Then add the pineapple, walnuts and carrot and, once again, mix well.
  • Spray a springform cake tin with oil and line the base with a round of baking paper. Then pour the cake mixture into the tin, give a good shake and cook in the oven for about 1¼-1½ hours until risen and golden, and a skewer comes out clean.
  • Place the tin on a cake rack for about 10 mins and then turn out. Remove the paper and set aside to cool.
  • To make the icing, beat cream cheese with a fork until soft and then add the icing sugar and lemon juice. Gently mix and smear over the top of cooled cake.
