Spiced Chocolate Banana Cake (Gluten Free)

cake 1

A beautiful medley of chocolate, banana, cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s a dense and rich cake made with a gluten free flour blend.

A chocolate ganache and sprinkles of green sugar love to make it look beautiful too!

Ever since I have discovered Bob Mill’s gluten free 1:1 baking mix, all my baking is now gluten free! It tastes the same like plain flour baked good do.

This flour blend is mixture of rice flour and sorghum along with some xanthium gum. Xanthium gum is the binding agent and a replacement to the gluten element.

Follow the same quantities if you want to make with plain flour. Just replace the gluten free flour with regular flour.
