GF banana chocolate cake

Back to the crazy baking! I’m actually trying to limit my baking because it’s really hard to not indulge when you are at home so much. I’ve adapted this recipe from my GF chocolate pound cake and decided not make a non-dairy free one so that I can have heaps of Nutella in my cake! So much joy when I bite into a mouthful of Nutella! Warning, this cake is really rich and moist banana chocolate cake and is potentially damaging to your waist line!


  1. 100g cocoa powder
  2. 180ml boiling water
  3. 1 tbsp coffee granules
  4. 150g unsalted butter
  5. 70g caster sugar
  6. 40g brown sugar
  7. 3 over ripe large bananas
  8. 3 eggs
  9. 100g gluten free flour
  10. 50g cornflour
  11. 100g of Nutella

Baking time: 70min or when the skewer comes out clean

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C
  2. Dissolve the coffee granules with boiling hot water
  3. Add in the cocoa powder into the boiling water in a bowl and mix until smooth. Set aside to cool
