Gluten free banana cake

    45 min

    For those of us who can't have gluten, try this banana bread for a treat with tea. I like to use maple syrup instead of adding so much sugar. This mixture will make 1 loaf or 24 muffins.

    To make muffins, divide the mixture between lined muffin tins. Bake for 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.

    You should specify 'gluten-free baking powder' if this recipe is called gluten-free ... I used only 5 very small bananas but still had a very wet mixture, so I added 1/2 tsp xanthum gum to help raise it - it puffed up quite nicely. I also added cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and grated lemon rind plus some chopped walnut.  -  01 Apr 2013
