Banana Cake with Browned Butter Caramel Sauce – Gluten Free

Browned Butter Banana Streusel Cake

Whether you’re looking for a banana cake recipe that’s gluten free or not, this is absolutely sensational and worthy of your attention.

This is another of my stand-by banana cakes (regardless of whether a gluten free is strictly required).

It’s gorgeous, dense and succulent. The browned butter adds lovely toffee undertones which work so very well alongside banana. The cake has a struesel, also known as “crumble”, topping for added texture.

All of this banana-crumbley-cakey goodness is then smothered in a delicious, rich, spoon-licking good caramel sauce. Yes yes yes!

The recipe as written is gluten free because it uses a special flour mix. But you could always use regular flour if gluten is not an issue for you. Either way, this cake is phenomenal.

And seriously, don’t even think about missing that caramel sauce. It works so well with all of the flavours and textures of the cake and takes it to a whole new level of delicious. You’ll thank me…

There a so many different types of banana cake – how about a lighter version, a chocolate one, or a somewhat childish peanut butter version? Banana cake frenzy.
