Chocolate & Banana Cake (Gluten-Free)

Chocolate banana cake (gluten-free)

Every Sunday there’s a fantastic car boot sale selling huge amounts of cheap fruit & veg – this week’s bargains include 3 honeydew melons for a pound, 2 super-sweet pineapples for a pound, and about 30 giant bananas also for a pound. Along with loads of delicious fruit salads, banana cake was on the agenda.

Apart from the chocolate, this recipe doesn’t include any fat. A healthy cake with a moist texture.

1 ripe banana, mashed

200ml apple juice

2 tbsp lemon juice & rind

1 organic egg, beaten

1/3 cup rice flour

1/3 cup corn flour

1/3 cup millet flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 tsp baking powder

¼ cup 70% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1. Preheat the oven gas mark 5

2. Mix the mashed banana with the apple juice, lemon juice & rind. Add in the egg.

3. In another bowl, sift the flours, sugar & baking powder together. Combine together with the wet ingredients.

4. Add in the chopped chocolate & cocoa powder & mix well.

5. pour into a pre-greased tin and bake for 40mins or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

I used bicarbonate of soda as I had run out of baking powder and it came out too sappy, and it fell apart when I tired to remove it from the tin :o(
