Gluten Free Banana Bread

Banana Bread

Gwen Stefani taught me to spell bananas. No joke, I'm not sure I actually knew how to spell the word banana before Holla Back Girl, but now I will never forget. Seriously though, my banana bread is BANANAS!!! It was seriously soooo good! Maybe it's because I haven't really had banana bread since getting diagnosed with celiac back in early 2012... but that can't be totally it, because I know my last banana bread was from Starbucks, they, my friends, have PERFECTED banana bread. Non-celiac friends, please, go eat some Starbucks banana bread for me!


Back to my banana bread - I used this recipe from Simply Recipes and cup4cup as my GF flour and evaporated cane juice as my sugar. I followed the proportions exactly in the recipe, choosing to use 1/2 a cup of sugar. Next time I will reduce the amount of flour to 1 1/4 cups (since I'm using GF flour) and add 3/4 cups of sugar for a sweeter bread.

Again - here is the recipe I followed (click the image and it will bring you to Simply Recipies):

UPDATE: I made this bread a second time with 1 1/4 cups of cup4cup gluten free flour and 1 cup of evaporated cane juice and it was a perfect texture and maybe just a bit too sweet. I'll be adding a 4th banana and only doing 3/4 cups of sugar next time!
