Recipe: Gluten Free Banana Loaf

gluten free banana bread

Banana loaf contains fruit, which makes it completely healthy and 100% diet-friendly.

Well, you can tell yourself that anyway. This gluten free version has been adapted from a recipe by Queen of Baking Mary Berry, and works just as well as the original. I cannot stop eating it. Please, someone help me.

Gluten Free Banana Loaf (Recipe adapted from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible)


  • 100g Softened Butter – or dairy free alternative
  • 175g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Ripe Bananas (mashed)
  • 225g Gluten Free Flour – Dove’s Farm worked perfectly in this recipe!
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C / Fan 160C / Gas 4.
  2. Lightly grease a 2lb loaf tin – you could also line with baking parchment but I didn’t and it worked fine!
  3. Measure all ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat it well and good, make sure it’s well blended. You could use a food processor if you’re lazy, like me.
  4. Mix in your sultanas or raisins – or you could use chocolate chips, if you want to make it extra delicious!
  5. Spoon the mixture into the tin and level the surface
  6. Bake in the pre-heated over for about 1 hour, until well risen and golden brown.  A fine skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean if the loaf is ready.
  7. Leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then turn out, peel off the parchment if you’re using it and cool on a nice wire rack.
