This banana bread or banana cake is one of my favorites. Because it is very easy to prepare and I love to take advantage of those bananas that are ripe in the fridge. those that are ugly and that nobody wants because eat but are ta rich and sweet. Those are that we use in this cake and it is what gives a unique flavor to the cake.

If in addition you save one for decoration then the result is already perfect. The texture of this cake is completely different from a normal cake. It is much more humid and elastic and therefore it can be done easily in version without gluten, replacing just the flour with ground almonds. A plus which no doubt makes it perfect for everyone.
