This is Banana and Date Loaf another way to use up those rogue bananas that end up over ripe before you get around to eating them. The date and bananas complement each other and if you can use demerara sugar you get an added toffee style flavour that’s quite delicious. This recipe in not only gluten free but also dairy free and vegan too, so nobody needs miss out at teatime.

  • 3 over 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
To decorate
  • 1 unripe banana cut into coins
  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and beat together to combine, it really is that simple.
  2. If necessary, add a little more milk to make the cake mixture into a wet enough consistency to drop off the spoon.
  3. Pour the mixture into a well-greased 2lb loaf tin and smooth the top with the back of a wet spoon or spatula.
  4. To decorate, place the coins from the extra banana over the top of the loaf in a pretty pattern.
  5. Pop into a preheated oven at 200°C / 180°C for 35-40mins
