Banana Loaf Cake with Biscoff Buttercream Frosting

This a super moist yet light cake, made with brown sugar to give a hint of a caramel flavour. The cake itself is pretty delicious, but the icing is definitely one of the most delicious things I’ve ever put in my mouth. Biscoff, butter and sugar whipped together = heaven.
