Banana crumb cake (GF + vegan + refined sugar-free)

Hello guys! I know I have been absent lately, but I am back now and I am bringing you a new delicious recipe.

I do have to mention that I am not a fan of bananas, but this recipe is a game changer. It is super moist, fluffy and filled with flavour, simply delicious! I actually didn’t plan on making this recipe but because I had some extra ripe bananas in my fridge I decided to use them and in the end, the cake was the final product 😛


Tip #1  is to find the ripest bananas you can! The browner and spottier they are the better — this is going to give your Banana Cake the best flavour. Mash them up well (you can use a potato masher, or even just a fork) and add them to your other wet ingredients.

Stir together your dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and then use a spatula to gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet. Take care not to over-mix the batter here!

Finally, pour your banana cake batter into a pan covered up with baking paper and prepare your crumb topping, which is what really puts this cake over the top!
