I generally don’t venture too much into gluten free baking. My forté is vegan baking, and I tend to stick to it.
But recently I scored some highly nutritious allergy friendly flours from Banamin Health Care and I wanted to see if I could come up with a completely GF cake with the Green Banana Flour. I was totally surprised by the results!
GF Banana Flour Chocolate Hazelnut Cake
1 C Banamin Green Banana Flour
3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Sada
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Arrowroot Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Jus’Amazin Crunchy Hazelnut Spread
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Psyllium Husk
1 C Warm Water

- Lightly grease a cake pan and line it with baking paper
- Mix together dry ingredients
- Quickly mix wet & dry mixtures (don’t overmix)
- Pour into cake pan
- Bake for 35 mins and test with a toothpick for doneness (bake for 5-10 mins longer if required)
- First cool the cake in the pan for 15 mins, then gently transfer to a wire rack along with the paper and cool completely before slicing
For the Icing:
