How to Make Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Cake?

To make the best vegan banana cake, I used a combination of brown rice flour and almond flour as the base. I used Bob’s Red Mills Brown Rice flour, Golden Flaxseed Meal, và Almond Flour.

It is so easy lớn prepare, just mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl except for the flaxseed meal, và then phối the flaxseed meal with almond milk, coconut oil, and vanilla in a bowl.

Next, combine both the wet và dry ingredients and mix until smooth; stir in the mashed bananas. Scoop batter into the prepared pan và bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely then spread frosting.

To get a smooth cake batter, thoroughly mash the banana.Make sure to thoroughly grease the pan, both the bottom và the sides.Let the cake cool completely before taking it out of the pan for the best results.Soy milk, rice milk, cashew milk, oat milk, và other plant-based milk can all be used.This recipe can be made with any type of oil (olive or vegetable) or butter.The baking time can differ based on the type of oven you have.Before applying the frosting to this gluten-free banana cake, make sure it has thoroughly cooled.

However, I will put the frosting in the refrigerator lớn thicken up, but once I frost the cake, it has to lớn stay out on the kitchen counter.
