Peel the bananas and break them into a bowl with the honey and the lemon juice. Mash together with a potato masher until they are very soft. Add the Pure spread and mash it in (don’t worry if the mixture looks lumpy). Next add the sieved flour, baking powder, caster sugar, eggs and sultanas.
Using the wooden spoon beat everything together then spoon into the tin and level with the potato masher.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes until the cake is a golden colour. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack.
While the banana loaf is still warm, glaze with honey and sprinkle on the crushed sugar cubes. Leave to cool.
