Our Favourite Super Light Banana Cake Recipe (Lactose Free)


  • plain flour 250g
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 115g Flora spread dairy free
  • 115g dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 500g mashed over-ripe bananas



Preheat your oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.

Lightly grease a 23x13cm (9×5 inches) loaf tin.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

In a separate bowl, cream together the Flora dairy free and brown sugar.

Stir in the eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.

Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten.

Pour mixture into prepared loaf tin.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, until a knife inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire cooling rack.
