Whilst we were staying at Camp Bongkud we learnt how to make gluten free steamed banana cake. With a prep time of just 10-15 minutes the process is quick and easy so here goes the 2nd ‘how to’ guide.
Ingredients you will need:
- 4 English bananas (I specify English as we used Malay bananas which are about the size of your thumb)
- 2 heaped spoonfuls of rice flour
- 1 heaped teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
Optional extras: coco powder/almonds/anything you desire
- Large saucepan and lid
- Metal baking tin that will comforatably fit in the saucepan
Step one – Peel the bananas and mash them inside the baking tin
If you decided to use any of the optional extras mix them all in now.
Step two – Add the rice flour and stir
Step three – Add the bicarbonate of sofa and mix again
Step four – Fill the saucepan halfway with boiling water (the baking tray will be going in here so bear that in mind with water quantity)
Step five – Add the baking tin to the pan of boiling water, put the lid on top and leave for 45 minutes – 1 hour
Step six – Remove the baking tin from the saucepan – your cake should look like this
Best enjoyed warm 😋
