Lovely taste! I made the cake with dairy free margarine and Dove Farm gluten free SR flour. I doubled the quantity and made two 1 lb. loaves. I lowered the temperature to 170C in our fan oven and checked after 30 minutes. I left them in for another 2 minutes. Great stuff!

My kids adored this, so much so I am going to make it regular for their lunch boxes.
I replaced the sugar with Coconut Sugar as my husband is a diabetic and it tasted great. I also used half a fresh vanilla pod instead of extract.
Fab recipe.

Made this with white bread flour with baking powder as that was all I had. I also added a few sultanas ! Gorgeous moist cake, very easy and turned out very well.

First try and the results were amazing. I doubled the recipe as had a few bananas to use up. Easy recipe to follow. I didn't have whole meal flour just used normal gluten free self raising flour. I have now made a further two cakes, my kids can't get enough and I can enjoy it too Thoroughly recommend

Really forgiving recipe, I have made this dozens of times with lots of variations such as without eggs, just added a bit more baking powder or almost fat free by using 100g Quark instead of the oil. Also add nuts seeds and dried fruit ie walnuts and dates or pumpkin, sunflower seeds and apricot, scatter some on top and cover for first 30 mins of baking to prevent fruit burning. I always make it with wholemeal but it is light and moist. Excellent recipe

This is the best banana cake receipe I have ever made and tasted. It is so moist bad light. I've made two in the last 4 days. I just used normal sef raising flour as I had no wholemeal in but will try it this was too once I mind to by some wholemeal flour. Also plan on making with out the egg to see how it turns out. First one I did with teh electric whisk and the one I made last night was with a wooden spoon and was so quick and easy. Have shared this one in work today so I await the feed back. This is a sure keeper for me love it love it.
