If you’ve never baked without gluten before, this banana bread will get you off to a great start. It’s simple, has no unusual ingredients and is incredibly tasty. Serves 8-10


75g unsalted butter

110g soft light brown sugar

2 eggs, at room temperature

200g Doves Gluten Free Plain White Flour Blend

1tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

½ tsp xanthan gum or guar gum

½ tsp ground nutmeg

½ tsp salt

2 ripe bananas

50g chopped walnuts


Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin

Preheat oven to 170°C/330°F/Gas Mark 3.

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, adding a little of the flour to prevent the mixture curdling.

Mash the banana and add to the butter and sugar. Now add the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, xanthan or guar gum, ground nutmeg and salt and beat well together.

Pour the mixture into the tin, lightly smoothing the surface. Bake in oven for approx 60 minutes until done. Cover with another piece of baking parchment if the top is getting too brown. Remove from the oven.

Allow to cool on a wire rack.
