Gluten free Banana Loaf

Gluten Free Banana Loaf

This easy gluten free banana loaf recipe is perfect served slightly warm with a spread of butter and a cup of tea.


5 organic smallish ripe bananas

250g Doves Farm gluten free flour

140g light muscovado sugar

75g organic butter (I like salted), melted

2 large free range eggs

2.5 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda

I lemon


  • Pre-heat oven to 180ºC, fan 160ºC . Grease and line a loaf tin.
  • In a mixing bowl mash 4 of the bananas, then add the sugar, melted butter and eggs. Beat together using an electric whisk.
  • Sift in the flour and bicarbonate of soda and gently fold in.
  • Pour the mixture into the loaf tin.
  • Slice the fifth banana in half length ways, rubbing the cut side of the banana with half a lemon. Then arrange on the top of the mix. ( I then squeeze the lemon and add to water, to quench the thirst).
  • Bake in the oven for 50 minutes. Check it is cooked by inserting a skewer ensuring it comes out clean.
  • Leave in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out on to a wire rack to cool down.
  • Slice and serve warm with butter.
