Gluten Free Banana Mocha Bread



This is as delicious as it sounds. I won't bother with a random anecdote today because in all honesty I don't want to keep you another second from putting this in your oven and turning your house in to the equivalent of Subway crossed with The Cookie Man.

Ingredients:

115gms butter, chopped, room temperature
1 cup caster sugar
4 bananas
1 tbs vanilla essence
2 eggs
3/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup corn flour
1 tsp xanthan gum
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbs instant coffee granules

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius

2. Using a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar together on a high speed until creamy, about 5 minutes

3. Peel your bananas and place them in a microwave safe dish. Buzz for 1 minute, then mash thoroughly

4. Mix your flours, gum, cocoa, salt and baking powder together. Sift, then add the coffee. Using a wire whisk, stir until it is completely mixed.

5. Pour the banana mash in to the butter mix, then add the vanilla, beating as you go

6. Add each egg individually to the butter mixture, beating well after each inclusion. Beat for 4 minutes to ensure full combination

7. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix thoroughly until there is no visible dry flour. It will be quite runny at this stage (this is good)

8. Grease a standard loaf pan well and pour the mixture in.

9. Bake in the oven for 1 hour, then turn the oven off and sit loaf in the oven for a further 10 minutes

10. Remove from the oven, allow to cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then remove (carefully). Allow to cool before slicing (as it may crumble or fall apart whilst still warm)
