Gluten Free Banana Cake
Yup, more from the gluten free baking round. I seem to be on a roll with this at the moment, discovering great things which are fun and easy to make, and oh so tasty pay off. My four year old seems to love them too. So what do you need?
1 large banana
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
100g brown sugar
100g self raising flour (preferably wholemeal)
This is super easy. Well, there is always one part that drives me nuts. Lining the loaf tin. I am not even sure if this is a 1lb or 2lb but you should use a 1lb tin. That was by far the trickiest part, but I managed.
So, mash your banana, egg and vanilla extract together. The browner and softer the banana, the easier to mash, the sweeter the taste in your cake.
Cream butter and sugar together in a separate bowl then add to the banana mixture.
Mix in your flour. I used white but wholemeal is best.
Pour in your tin and you are done!
Bake for 45-50 minutes @ 180 degrees (160 degrees for a fan oven) and voila:
Leave to cool in the tin for 20 minutes before turning out. Then enjoy!
Its a lovely, not overly sweet cake, that stays moist and sticky over the few days after its baked, staying really nice while you enjoy it. Popular with small people too. So have a go at it and enjoy!
Till next time
