Gluten free Banana, chocolate and walnut Cake

Gluten free banana, chocolate and walnut cake- MY DELISHVILLE

When bananas become very ripe I take this opportunity to make this delicious cake and my house becomes full of the rich and deep smell of bananas and cinnamon.

I have tried so many banana cake recipes and, so far end this is my favourite. The original recipe was given to me by a work colleague and I have adapted it to make it gluten free. I love the crunchiness of the walnuts in this cake and it keeps moist for several days.

It is also one of my work snack options. Once the cake is cool I cut generous slices, put in small containers and take to the freezer to join the stock of homemade meals.

If you like a sweeter cake, add more chocolate. For me 130g gives me the perfect sweetness.
