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.
