Gluten Free Banana Cake


At Caroline’s Cookery I have been working on my Gluten Free Baking. The star ingredient for me is Coconut flour which is ideal for cakes. My first attempt was not a success! BUT as you can see from my Banana Cake shown here I have now cracked it. To make a lovely cake you use a third of the amount of Coconut flour compared to a recipe using plain or self-raising flour.

Here’s the recipe

90ml sunflower oil
80 g coconut flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
150g coconut sugar
3 eggs
2 ripe bananas, mashed
125 ml soured cream or buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
shredded coconut to decorate
Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark  4. Lightly grease a loaf tin and line
the sides and base with baking paper.
Sift the coconut flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar.
Beat together the eggs, oil, bananas, cream and vanilla extract in a large bowl.
Tip the dry ingredients in and mix until everything is combined.
Pour into the prepared tin and bake for about 50 minutes. Cool in the tin then
turn out and decorate with the shreds of coconut. Enjoy:)
