It’s so easy and quick to make and it tastes fabulous. All my kids will eat it (which is a massive bonus) although sometimes I have to hide it from them so I can eat a few extra portions!
Hope you enjoy it. Here’s the recipe (it’s written for a Thermomix, but you can use any high speed blender).
1 cup of rice bran oil
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 table of vanilla essence
1 large ripe banana
1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cups gluten free self raising flour (I use White Wings)
I cup shredded coconut
1 x 400g of pineapple chunks (tinned and in JUICE not syrup!)
Line with baking paper and grease a 20cm cake tin
Turn on over at 160 degrees
In a thermomix (or equivalent)
firstly add pineapple and pulse 1-2 times
Then in the clean thermomix jug add:
oil, raw sugar, vanilla, 2 eggs, banana, and gluten-free flour
Mix on speed 4 for 20 seconds – so batter is smooth
Add to cake batter:
1 cup of shredded coconut and pineapple
Mix on Speed 4 for 5-10 seconds
pour into greased cake tin
put in oven and cook 35-40 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
