fabulous cake! Made for the first time and used the tip below of double bananas and less sugar, so used 2 very ripe bananas and 75g sugar, also made in 3 individual moulds and they were gone before they were cold! best ever cakes - not sure what they are like cold, will need to make another batch :)

Lovely cake, very moist. I used Doves Farm gluten free self raising flour which was perfect! I added 75g sultanas which I mixed with the flour to stop them sinking. Will bake this again and again!

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
