I tripled the quantities to bake a large cake for colleagues at work. Used 3 large bananas and added chopped walnuts. Result was a very moist, quite dense and sweet cake (due to the amount of banana no doubt). It got rave reviews from all the lads at work who went back for seconds. Then I told them it was gluten free, and suddenly it was decided that I had to bake a different cake every week from now on. Luckily Doves Farm website and ingredients make gluten free baking easy!

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!
