Is this recipe made with self raising GF flour or plain GF flour? - 02 Mar 2014


Great recipe. We have 3 lactose intolerant coeliacs in the family, so I adapted the recipe to suit. It was a huge success. Dee-lish! - 02 Jan 2014


I loved this recipie. One tip I have is to put foil over the top until the last half hour, it stops it's burning too much on the top. I also added slightly more bananas and some cinnamon. - 22 May 2014
