Recipe: Gluten Free Banana Sheet Cake

gluten free banana sheet cake recipe

If you are like me you always seem to end up with overly ripened bananas on your counter. Yes, I usually put them in the freezer for future use but sometimes even my freezer seems to have too many unused bananas in it.

That is why I like to have a few banana recipes on my blog for you to look through. This recipe makes enough for a 9 x 13 baking pan and that is especially nice when you have a larger group expected at your house or you need a dessert for that holiday party or pot luck dinner.

This is an easy recipe to make too for it bakes in one pan. You can easily jazz this cake up with a cream cheese frosting and then top it with sugared banana chips and pecans. Does that not sound delicious?

I again used vegan “butter”, goat milk and dairy free cream cheese in this recipe but if dairy is not a problem for you feel free to use the regular butter, milk and cream cheese.

I am a big fan of using goat milk as an alternative to cows milk for when apple cider vinegar is added to it it resembles buttermilk. Buttermilk aids in helping your gluten free baked goods rise and so does the goat milk.
