Banana Cake
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1½ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups gluten free flour mix (I used Carol’s sorghum blend)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Using a mixer, cream together the butter, oil, and sugar.
  2. Add the eggs, banana, and vanilla, and mix well.
  3. Add the mayonnaise and mix.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl, then add, mixing until thoroughly incorporated.
  5. Spread the batter in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.
  6. Bake at 350° for 30 – 35 minutes.
  7. Cool in the pan, or turn onto a rack if desired.
This cake is good with a simple glaze, cream cheese frosting, or vanilla frosting. It’s also great plain. I’m sure there are many ways to mash bananas, but my favorite is to put them in a small bowl and use a pastry blender to mash them.
