- 3 ripe bananas mashed
- 160 g self raising gluten free flour
- 60 g demerara sugar
- 60 g chopped dates
- 60 ml soya milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 unripe banana cut into coins
Add all the ingredients to a bowl and beat together to combine, it really is that simple.
If necessary, add a little more milk to make the cake mixture into a wet enough consistency to drop off the spoon.
Pour the mixture into a well-greased 2lb loaf tin and smooth the top with the back of a wet spoon or spatula.
To decorate, place the coins from the extra banana over the top of the loaf in a pretty pattern.
Pop into a preheated oven at 200°C / 180°C for 35-40mins
