These Apple and Banana Mini Loaves are delicious, gluten free and are little loaves of sweet cake! Their size is perfect - one for straight out the oven, one for dessert and one for lunch boxes the next day! 🙂
Do you ever bake a cake and it is just too big? It may just sit in the cake storer for a few days. Well the perfect solution is to bake these apple and banana mini loaves! Their size is just so handy - they are larger than muffins but not so huge as a large cake. The recipe is designed for mini loaves, so each loaf is just perfect!
The Apple and Banana Mini Loaves recipe is extremely easy and only uses 7 ingredients!! - brown sugar, eggs, butter at room temp, bananas, apple purée, cinnamon and self-raising gluten-free flour (I use the Orgran brand).
You will need to purchase small loaf tins (I use 3 tins for this recipe) and the tip to this recipe is to make sure you grease the inside of the tin with butter well and let them cool, before taking out from the mini loaf tins.
They are so delicious when the cakes are cool and spread with butter or margarine!
You could also add in a few extra ingredients...like chocolate pieces, maybe dates or sprinkle with walnuts!
Tip for bananas - I often have bananas left over and I store them in the fridge and even the freezer till I need to make something that needs a banana flavour. (Yes, the bananas do go black when you store them in the fridge or freezer, but the banana inside is still perfect for cooking)
