Ingredients

  • 5 small ripe bananas (4 mashed, 1 sliced down the middle to decorate the top)
  • 150g gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 100g gluten-free oats
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 90g dark brown sugar
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 100g butter , melted
  • 2 large eggs , beaten
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 900g loaf tin with parchment paper (our tin was 19 x 9 x 6cm). Put all the ingredients, except the sliced banana, 1 tbsp caster sugar and the icing sugar, into a large bowl and stir until smooth and combined.

  • STEP 2

    Pour into the tin and put the two remaining banana halves cut-side up across the top of the batter, pressing down slightly. Sprinkle over the caster sugar. Bake for 1hr-1hr 15 mins until a skewer comes out clean, covering with foil towards the end of cooking if it browns too much.

  • STEP 3

    Dust with icing sugar and leave to cool.
