Apple, Cinnamon and Banana Loaf Fresh from the Oven

I can’t stop eating cake right now. All day I think about it, and then rush home to eat some, and bake another cake or loaf! I made this yesterday, and needless to say, it has been consumed within a matter of hours.


1/1/2 cup Gluten-free Plain Flour
1tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Xanthum Gum
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
3/4 cup Vegan Margarine
3/4 cup Unrefined Cane Sugar ( natural golden Castor sugar)
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 medium Apples
1 medium Banana
1/4 cup Water
extra Margarine for greasing

How To Make

Preheat oven to 180ºc. Grease a loaf tin with vegan margarine.

Cream together the margarine and sugar in a large bowl. Add the vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.

Sieve together the flour, baking powder, Xanthum gum and cinnamon. ensure it is all really well combined.

Peel and grate an apple and add this to the margarine and sugar mix, along with a mashed banana. Add the flour mixture to the margarine mixture and stir in till a thick batter is formed.

Cake Batter

Now you will need to add roughly 1/4 cup of water til the batter is slightly runnier and less stiff.

Slice the last apple, lay the pieces in to the base of the greased loaf tin, pour over the batter and spread evenly with a spatula.

Sliced Apple in the Loaf Tin

Stick in the oven, on the middle shelf for 40 minutes, or until an inserted knife or skewer comes out clean.

Leave to cool on a rack and turn out.

    Hey George,
    I do use ‘Real Cinnamon’ in my cooking!
    I don’t live in the U.S, and I haven’t heard of Cassia till just now.
    Hmmmm, interesting. I’ll make a point from now on of clarifying that I use ‘real Cinnamon’ in my recipes.
    Thanks for the tip off!

    Have you tried using Real Cinnamon in your recipe. Real Cinnamon is much sweeter than the Cassia that we buy in the US as Cinnamon.
