As you can see from my previous recipes, I am not a baker. I prefer making a meal to dessert. One reason is because I do have a sensitivity to butter so if I can’t use butter, why bother. The next few weeks, I plan on making easy fun “weekday” cakes that you can through together for your family. This Pineapple Banana Gluten Free Cake is really easy. I think of it like a dump cake but with gluten free flour.
2 ripe Bananas, mashed
I used Betty Crocker Yellow Gluten Free cake mix. Below 4 items are needed for this box cake.
1 stick of Butter (softened)
2/3 cup of Water
2 tsp Gluten-Free Vanilla
4 slices sliced Pineapples chopped into small pieces (canned works fine) totally 1/2 cup
2 tsp ground Cinnamon
Your favorite vanilla icing or Cream Cheese is recommended.
Mash bananas first.
Add softened butter, water, vanilla, eggs and mix well.
Add cinnamon and cake mix.
Add the pineapples.
Pour into two 9 inch greased round pans. Bake for 40-46 minutes. Cool completely.
Turn over and remove from pans onto a serving dish.
Place one layer down, ice the top. Then add the top layer and ice the top and sides.
We used leftover icing. One was pink tint. =) It was leftover from Valentine’s Day. It is recommended to use Cream Cheese icing. Or, you can do what we did and used regular vanilla icing.
I hope this inspires you to bake a dessert for the weekday meal. If you want to print out this recipe, here it is.
