Easy gluten free banana and chocolate chip cake

In our family, bananas and chocolate is always a winner! 

So I got absolutely no complaints when I announced, yesterday, that I was planning to make a banana and chocolate chip cake!

I had been given about 20 very ripe bananas and I needed to do something with them… so I came up with my own recipe of a gluten free banana and chocolate chip cake.  We were all pleased with the result: it was moist and delicious!  It didn’t last long… everyone wolfed it down!

The great thing about using bananas in a cake is that you then need hardly add any sugar – the fruit bring in enough naturally.   

It’s incredibly fast and easy to make – basically whizz all the ingredients together and bake for 45 minutes!  A dream cake for a busy person like me 🙂

Here it is – enjoy! 

Ingredients:

  • 300 g of banana
  • 50 g of brown sugar
  • 130 g of butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g of chocolate chips (I actually used 100 g of dark chocolate that I chopped up in small chunks with a large knife)
  • 100 g of rice flour
  • 110 g of cornflour (see products used)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt 

Method:

  • Mash the bananas.
  • Add the sugar, butter and eggs and mix well.
  • Add the flours,  baking and salt, and mix well again.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix gently.
  • Line a cake tin with non-stick baking paper and pour the mixture in.
  • Bake in the oven at 200°C for 45 minutes.
  • Let the cake cool down and enjoy!
