The easiest most delicious gluten free banana cake... EVER!

I love, love, love this cake! Not only is it ridiculously easy to make, it tastes delicious too! All you do is mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and bung it in the oven, my type of no-faff baking!

The more over ripe the bananas the better, so it's a great way to use up those black ones that have been lurking in the fruit bowl for a while!

It's also gluten-free - but feel free to use normal self-raising flour you prefer. I also like to add a bit of extra fruit to the mixture just before baking, try adding anything from glace cherries, raspberries, peaches, strawberries etc etc. 

What you need: 

4 bananas, mashed up really well into a pulp (the more mashed the better)

100g of softened butter

200g of caster sugar

2 eggs (beaten)

250 gluten-free self-raising flour (I like Doves Farm)

2 level teaspoons of gluten free baking powder

a glug of olive oil (just adds a nice bit of moisture to the cake

Fruit slices of your choice, my favourite are peaches or raspberries

 What you do: 

Beat all the ingredients together until smooth and pour into two lined loaf tins. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees centigrade for around 35 mins until a knife comes out clean --- watch it carefully, I much prefer a cake under cooked than over!

ENJOY WITH blueberries and yoghurt and a nice cup of tea,
