Gluten-free banana and passionfruit bread
- 1Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease and line a 10 x 20cm loaf pan, allowing baking paper to overhang 2cm on long sides.
- 2In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together until pale and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- 3Beat in honey. Fold in mashed banana, then add combined self-raising and plain flours, then almond meal.
- 4Lightly mix 1/4 cup of the almonds through. Spoon into pan. Smooth surface. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of almonds. Bake 55-60 minutes, until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
- 5Meanwhile, make frosting: In a small bowl of an electric mixer beat cream cheese and butter together until creamy. Add icing sugar mixture. Beat until combined.
- 6Stir passionfruit pulp through. Spread over cooled banana bread. Cut into slices to serve.
If preferred, omit the passionfruit icing and serve in slices, toasted with ricotta, strawberries and drizzled with extra passionfruit. You'll need 2-3 ripe bananas for this cake. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze.
