Gluten free banana and honey tea cake and muffins

Yet more bananas left uneaten and going brown in the bowl!  Grrr!  Anyway, I thought I would try something a little different from last time.  This mixture made a tea cake and six muffins (three didn’t last long enough to get in the photo).

Gluten free banana and honey tea cake and muffins

125g butter

3 overripe bananas

2 tbsp honey

2 eggs

2 & 1/2 cups gluten free self raising flour

3/4 cups milk


Preheat a fan forced oven to 170 celcius, 180 if not fan forced.

In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt the butter.  Mash the bananas directly into the butter.  Add the remaining ingredients one at a time, mixing until just combined after each addition.  Spoon some mixture into 6 muffin cups, and the remainder into a cake tin.  Cook the muffins for 20 minutes, and the cake for 45 minutes.  When each pan is removed from the oven, leave to stand in the pan for five minutes before turning out onto a cake cooler.

  1. I usually eat breakfast at home. however although i like to eat soup or other dishes. I often eat cake in the morning because i have less time to prepare. thanks for sharing. great recipe. yum ~!

  2. Thank you, Susan, for sharing this. don’t buy bananas very often; I don’t really like them all that much. I do however, like their health benefits. So when I do buy some, most of them end up in the freezer for baking, or worse, in the bin because they’ve gone mouldy. I love banana bread and cake, however, and yes, banana muffins, too. This recipe looks so much simpler than my usual, and has *much* less sugar, too! (My friends and I are always on the lookout for ways to make our favourites a little more healthy.) I’ll be making this to share with the Ladies Who Get Things Done (my co-op’s events committee) next week. We all deserve a treat. The big change I will make will be to add nuts, or even chocolate chips. There’s such a thing as being TOO virtuous!
