Gluten-Free Banana Cake

We’ve baked this cake a few times in my home, but it was always it’s gluten counterpart. Now since I’m gluten-free and I’ve taken it up on myself to bake the things I crave from my past diet, it was time to experiment.

Gluten-Free Banana Cake

Growing up I ate a lot of bananas, my father even planted a couple trees for me so there is no surprise there that I would say banana was one of my favorite fruits growing up. So naturally I would really fancy banana cake and pretty much anything with banana.

The original recipe called for the usual gluten flour but since I was out of gluten-free flour I figured I would use oats instead. I made it a few times with quick oats and homemade oat flour (I simply used the blender, a food processor or grinder would work better.). Both came out absolutely delicious. If you weren’t told it is gluten-free, you would not have guessed it. The oats gave the cake a natural wheaty flavor which would fool anyone. There is no doubt about it, so far this cake is my best gluten-free bake ever.

I served my cake with powdered sugar sprinkled on top but usually it is served with banana cream. I will include the recipe for the cream if you wish to use it. Two days after baking it I placed it in the fridge, I couldn’t tell you for sure how long it should last before going bad because it never gets the chance to get to that stage.
