Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Banana Cake with Caramel Frosting.
When I was diagnosed with coeliac there wasn’t the amount of options available in the supermarket that there is now. The thing I missed most was cakes so I focused my efforts on trying to figure out gluten and dairy free baking. A Victoria sandwich and a banana loaf were the first things that I managed to make I was happy with.
I’ve jazzed up the basic banana loaf recipe and added some dairy free caramel frosting for a more decadent cake. Perfect with a cup of coffee as an afternoon treat.

Banana Cake with Caramel Frosting (Gluten & Dairy Free)
For the banana cake:
For the caramel frosting:
Preheat the oven to 180 oC
Grease and line a 7" cake tin
Cream the dairy free spread and sugar together until light and fluffy
Add the eggs, beating well between each addition
Mash the bananas and add to the mixing bowl
Add in the dry ingredients and mix well
Pour the cake mix into the cake tin
Bake in the oven for 60 minutes
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before frosting
Make the frosting by beating together the dairy free spread, icing sugar and caramel sauce until light and fluffy
Cut the cake in half and use 1/3 of the frosting to sandwich the cakes together
Use the rest of the frosting to coat the top and sides of the cake - I decorated mine with some dried banana chips
