GF Banana Lemon Loaf

(adapted to fit the ingredients I have on hand!)

1 cup rice flour

1 cup buckwheat flour (I used 1.5 cups rice flour and .5 of sorghum flour mix)

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup plus 2 tbsp margarine or butter

1 1/4 cups sugar

23 oz bananas (I used 3 average sized ones)

4 large eggs

I added 1 TBSP of lemon zest and
1 tsp of gf lemon extract to the original recipe

4 tbsp icing sugar

1 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350

Sift flours with baking powder and salt.

Beat the butter, sugar and bananas together until smooth and then briefly stir in the eggs.

Stir this into the flour mixture until blended.

Pour into a large loaf pan and bake for about 1 - 1 1/4 hours or until a skewer comes out clean and the cake is just firm. It overflowed my loaf pan! Burned on the bottom of the oven, and created a mess that will be HARD to clean up. (Any volunteers to come over and wash the pan for me?) But, it's delicious! It has way too much sugar so it isnt something i'd make very often.

Cool for 10 minutes and then mix the sugar with the lemon juice and drizzle over the top.

Isn't it UGLY??? :o)

It looks yum. It does have a lot of sugar in it but a treat now and is okay. :) But eating it in one day is very healthy but that's what I would do (I have a mouthful of sweet teeth, i inherited the trait from mum) I'm quite suprised my teeth haven't rotted. I guess brush your teeth twice everyday does work.

Well, I guess Mooky was thinking the same thing you were because he ate HALF the loaf and now he has a miserable stomach ache. Gotta learn somehow, I guess!
