Glazed Banana Spice Loaf

1 large banana (or 1 1/2 small bananas)
1/2 c. margarine or butter
2/3c. sugar
2 eggs (3 small)
2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. nutmeg (less)
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
2/3 c. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
icing sugar (I can't remember how much - 1/2 cup?)
1-2 tbsp. lemon juice

Mash banana, set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add flour, salt, soda and spices, stir to combine. Add sour cream, banana and vanilla, mix just enough to blend. Pour into greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan (I use glass). Bake at 350 for 45-50 (mine took over an hour - test with toothpick) minutes. Mix lemon juice with icing sugar (regular sugar works well too), stir until smooth. I poked holes with a toothpick all over the top loaf and then poured the glaze on. (I used parchment paper to line the pan, so it was easy (easi-er) to remove.)
