SPECIAL BANANA LOAF CAKE



BANANA LOAF CAKE
One of the best-loved baking recipes in my section in volume 1 of  Low-Carbing Among Friends is the Banana Walnut Bread (you can use walnuts or chocolate chips).  Here is another idea - divide the batter between two 8 x 4 x 3-inch (1.5 L) loaf pans (also add a 1/4 cup extra bake mix and a little extra mashed banana to the batter, but only if necessary).  Baking time will be a lot less, so do check every 5 minutes after 25 minutes of baking with a cake tester, knife or toothpick and if it comes out clean, then you're golden.   You'll have two loaves (not terribly high), that you place one on top of the other and it is lovely frosting the cake with Betty Crocker Frosting (don't need Splenda Granular - use EZSweetz liquid sucralose or your own preferred zero carb liquid sweetener) or with your favorite cream cheese frosting (make it sweet enough  though.  Pllain spreadable cream cheese works very well).  I used the Gluten-Free Bake Mix with xanthan gum for this recipe, but you can just as easily use the other alternative and use 3 tsp of gelatin mixed in with the wet ingredients.  Have a great day everyone and a fun weekend!
