Mix bicarb soda into apple sauce (it will froth) add cinnamon and apple mixture to bowl. Stir in mashed banana. Gently fold flour into mixture in one go. Do not beat as this will make the cake tough.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly pressed in centre.
Mix icing sugar and margarine in a small mixing bowl, slowly add enough juice to make a spreadable consistency.
