Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Grease a bundt tin liberally with butter, chill in the fridge then butter it again. Sprinkle all over the inside with flour and tip out any excess.
  3. In a frying pan on a medium-high heat, fry the bacon bits until they are nice and crisp. Add the maple syrup and stir to combine, then remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy, then add the egg and beat until smooth and combined. Add the mashed bananas and natural yogurt, then stir to combine.
  5. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a separate bowl, then gradually add to the wet mixture, beating all the while. Once all the dry ingredients are incorporated, tip in the candied bacon and stir to combine.
  6. Pour the mixture into your prepped bundt tin and bake in the oven for about 50 mins, until a skewer comes out clean
  7. Leave the cake in the tin for 10 mins after it comes out of the oven, then turn out to cool.
  8. Combine the sifted icing sugar with the maple syrup and water, stirring until it is a smooth mixture.
  9. Drizzle the cooled cake with the icing and serve!
