Gluten Free Banana Spice Cake Recipe

Since it’s fall, I’m not trying to do apple or pumpkin everything, but instead spice everything! So the beginning of this fall trend is banana spice cake, which I’m happy to say turned out really well. Super light, moist, and yummy. Here’s my recipe:

If you like to taste heavier spices, double everything in the spice mix part. Otherwise the spices will be light and the banana flavor will be front and center.

Set the oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until they’re as smooth as possible. Mine always still have some lumps, but this is normal.
2. Add all wet ingredients to the bananas and mix well.
3. Put all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix them together well, making sure to use a spatula to press out any lumps most common in the almond flour and coconut sugar.
4. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and turn the mixer on. Make sure you scrape the bottom of the mixer with a spatula so none of the dry ingredients stay clumped on the bottom. The batter will seem a little loose – that’s okay! If you dip your spatula into the batter, about half should slide off and half should stick.
5. Pour mixture into a well greased baking pan (mine was 9×9) and put in the oven for approximately 30 minutes.

By the time your cake is done baking, it will be a beautiful brown with edges pulled away from the sides of the baking pan. It shocked me how light this came out, but the combo of almond flour and brown rice flour is really what did it.

    you know – it is really great to get these recipes – but they just won’t print – the folks in your IT department need to create a printer friendly button – that just prints the recipes not all the other stuff on the page. Just my two cents.

    • Thanks for your comment, Sandy. I’ve been thinking about getting a widget or whatever is needed to have recipes that print properly, and now that you commented about it, I’m definitely going to do it. 🙂

    was wondering – for those if us that are watching calorie/carb counts – the servings in this would be 8? I can put the recipe in My Fitness Pal to find out the rest…but 3 bananas are high in those carbs..
