Hi and welcome back.
One thing you might not know about me is I have a total sweet tooth. If I am given the choice between cake (any cake, I’m really not fussy) or a savory bite, I will ask pick cake. I love all types of cake but my favourite comes from your less traditional ingredients; banana, carrot, coffee, walnut and fruit. This recipe was actually one of the first recipes I created after becoming a coeliac. Everyone I have given a piece to loves it. One of my friends enjoyed it so much it has now become her birthday cake each year. I hope you enjoy it too. C. -x-

- 3 bananas – mashed

- Bake for 40 minutes or until brown.
- Riper bananas are best for this recipe; they blend more easily and give a sweeter flavour.
- Why not try adding chocolate chips covered in gluten free flour at step 7 for an extra treat?
- Or why not added chopped walnuts and pecans for a cake with a crunch?
There you go, a perfect treat for an afternoon snack or to serve guests when they visit. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
