Sugar Free Banana Cake

I like the taste and smell of bananas, however in their natural form I find them hard to digest so haven’t had them in my diet for about 8 months now.  As you might have seen from from other my posts to date, I am a big fan of comfort food so when I came across a recipe for Sugar Free Banana Cake, I just had to give it a try!

Recipe

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of dairy free spread
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 2 cups of rice flour (sieved)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease & line a 9inch cake tin.

In the blender, blitz the bananas into a smooth paste.  Next add the dairy free spread, eggs and water and blend until ingredients are combined.

Meanwhile, measure out the rice flour and sieve into a bowl.  Add the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon.

Pour the wet ingredients from the blender into the bowl with the dry ingredients.  Using a wooden spoon, slowly combine the ingredients together to form a smooth cake mixture.

Pour the mixture into the ready prepared cake tin and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 45 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.

When cooked, remove from the oven and turn out on to a wire rack to cool.

And there you have it, a dairy free, wheat free, sugar free banana cake – yum!
