Gluten Free Banana Bread
This bread is more like a dessert than bread. Don't kid yourself; Banana Bread basically is cake with some fruit in it!!
I've made this bread with an assortment of gluten free flours, and they have all worked beautifully in it. Although, I think my favorite flour for this recipe is Authentic Foods Bette's Gourmet Four Flour Blend. It is heavier flour so it makes heavier, denser bread.
You will love this bread!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs.
In a small separate bowl, mash the bananas with a fork.
In a medium separate bowl, mix together the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt.
Alternate adding the bananas and the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture until blended.
Turn into a buttered 5 X 9 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with coconut flakes.
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and serve with butter.
