Crunchy Banana Loaf Cake

I can’t believe how delicious tasting this banana loaf cake is. It’s probably one of my all time favourite recipes.

It’s so moist and light and the banana slices give every mouthful a delightful crunch. My boys loved it, and between us we ate the whole loaf in one sitting! I enjoyed my slices with a nice hot cuppa.

This banana loaf cake is very easy to make and is a fun activity to do with little ones too. They might like to help mash up the bananas and help you to stir the mixture together.

With this recipe I chose to split the mixture in to two 1lb loaf tins and freeze one loaf for a later date. Alternatively, you can use a 2lb tin but it will need longer in the oven to bake through.

Gluten free. Dairy free. Soya free.


  • 100g banana chips
  • 150g dairy free margarine
  • 4 eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 200g gluten free self raising flour, sifted
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed

  • Preheat your oven to 190C and line two 1lb loaf tins.
  • Select 24 whole banana chips for decorating, 12 for each small loaf.
  • Beat the margarine and sugar together in a bowl then, one by one, gradually beat in the eggs.
  • Slowly fold in the flour, mashed banana and remaining broken banana chips until everything is mixed together.
  • Spoon the mixture in to the two 1lb loaf tins, then decorate the top of each cake with 12 banana chips.
  • Pop the cakes in to the oven for 35-40 minutes until risen and golden.
  • If you are using a 2lb loaf tin, you will need to leave the cake in for a further 10 minutes or so.
  • Leave to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before turning out and leaving to cool completely.

This crunchy banana loaf cake tastes great warmed with a drizzle of toffee sauce.
