Makes: 12 slices


For the bread

1/2 x Noshu 99% Sugar Free Vanilla Velvet Cake Mix (You will only need 1/2 the dry mix of the cake (240g total)
250g (2 large) ripe-overripe bananas, mashed
2 Large eggs, or egg replacer of choice (for a vegan version)
50g Butter, melted (or oil for vegan version)
2 tsp Cinnamon

For the cream cheese frosting

1 x Noshu 99% Sugar Free Vanilla Velvet Frosting Mix sachet
150g Cream cheese (or Toffuti for vegan option)

Walnuts and banana, to garnish



Pour half the contents of a Vanilla Velvet 99% Sugar Free Cake Mix into a large mixing bowl

Mash the bananas in a separate bow. Combine the eggs, melted butter /oil, cinnamon and banana into the bowl with cake dry mix and whisk with a hand whisk until well combined.

Preheat oven to 180°C conventional / 170°C fan forced and grease and line your loaf tin with baking paper and oil. Pour batter into the lined loaf tin, and bake for 30-45 minutes.

Combine the Noshu Vanilla Frosting Mix and cream cheese into a mixing bowl. Using electric beaters, whip the frosting for 5-6 minutes on high to produce a fluffy cream cheese frosting.

Transfer the banana loaf to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before frosting with the cream cheese frosting.

Top with extra banana or walnuts, and slice into 12 evenly-sized serves.

The banana bread itself can be frozen, but we suggest leaving the cream cheese frosting off if you do this.


Vegan friendly option       

Simply replace the eggs with an egg replacer for the bread, and use Nuttelex or Toffuti for the frosting.

Tip: Add a tiny bit of lemon juice to the mix to create a more tart ‘cream cheese’ frosting.
