1 Heat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a loaf tin with a little reduced-fat spread.
2 Sieve flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add melted spread, eggs, banana, vanilla and milk. Mix well. Add Sugromax and orange zest, stirring briefly. Pour into prepared tin and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool.
3 To make vanilla drizzle, in a small bowl mix icing sugar and vanilla with enough cold water to form a thin paste. Drizzle over cooled cake and serve. Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days, or freeze without drizzle.
