Gluten Free Banana Bread(That You Can Serve Company)

So, onward with my Gluten Free Recipes (that you can serve company) Series!!!

Today’s recipe for gluten free banana bread is not a total success.. now don’t get me wrong, it is delicious and I do think you could serve it to company. But that said, I think I could improve it. It turned out more cakey than I would like and I need to do a bit more research to find out why that happened so I can improve on it. I actually think this recipe might be better suited for muffins, then I may not mind the cakeiness so much. But if you like cakey banana bread you will love this recipe (and even if you don’t- it still tastes really good!!).

Gluten Free Banana Bread


1 stick butter, softened ($.75)
4 medium ripe (brown spots) bananas ($.60)
2 eggs ($.20)
1 cup sugar ($.80)
2 teaspoon real vanilla (Gluten Free) ($.10)

1 1/2 cups fine rice flour* ($.37)
1/2 cup sorghum flour ($.38)
1/2 tablespoon ground flax ($.05)
1/4 tsp salt ($.01)
2 teaspoons baking powder (Gluten Free) ($.05)
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional, I did not use)


Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
Mash bananas in a small bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream your butter with sugar with a mixer (stand or hand held).
Add in eggs, vanilla and mashed bananas.
In a separate bowl, combine flours, ground flax, salt and baking powder.
Add dry ingredients (about a 1/4 cup at a time) to the wet and beat until combined.
If you add nuts, gently fold them in at the end.
Pour batter into greased 5 x 9-inch loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until toothpick comes out clean.


*make sure you use fine ground rice flour, it will turn out very different if you use regular rice flour- which has a grainy texture. And please know that is a terrible price at Amazon!! I pick it up at my local Thai market for $.99 a bag).

Hope you enjoy this Gluten Free Banana Bread
