Tips for the ultimate gluten-free chocolate banana cake
- Use overripe bananas. The best bananas for this cake are just beginning to spot and have a soft texture but aren't all the way brown yet.
- Line your baking sheet with parchment paper when baking. This makes it easy to remove the cake once it's cooled and top with frosting!
- Don't over mix the batter. I love using my KitchenAid mixer when baking. However, it's easy to just let it run and step away for a bit. To ensure a fluffy and moist cake, keep an eye on the batter and don't over mix
