Gluten free cakes can often be dry and not have much flavour
this recipe gives you the chance to have a moist, fluffy, tasty and delicious cake...

or it can be iced with either a butter or
lemon cream cheese icing
(yes...I know...that is the big decision right! 😉 )
Recipe for The Best Gluten Free Banana Cake Ever!!
- 2 ripe bananas - mashed
- 125g butter - at room temp
- 2 eggs
- ¾ of a cup of brown sugar
- 1½ cups of gluten free self raising flour - (I use Orgran Gluten Free Self Raising Flour)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon of bi-carb soda
- ¼ cup of almond milk ( or you could use regular milk. Almond milk adds extra flavour)
- Preheat oven to a moderate temperature 180ºC or 350ºF
- Cream butter, sugar and vanilla together
- Beat in eggs, one at a time
- Mash bananas well with a fork then beat into the creamed mixture
- Fold in flour and soda, then stir in milk
- Line a cake tin (or ring tin) with baking paper. (I line the base and cut off the extra paper and grease the sides with butter)
- Spoon onto the baking tin and bake at 180ºC or 350ºF (moderate oven) for 45 mins or until cooked. Test with a skewer and if it comes out clean, then it is ready.
- Cool in the tin for a few minutes before turning out onto a cake cooler.
- you can serve it warm drizzled with custard or when the cake is cool, ice it with either a butter cream icing or cream cheese icing.
- Cream Cheese Icing - mix 125g of soft cream cheese, 1 cup of icing sugar and a good squeeze of lemon juice. Mix to a smooth consistency and top the delicious banana cake!! Enjoy 🙂
