  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Coat the inside of a 13 x 9-inch (33 cm x 23 cm) pan with nonstick spray. Dust lightly with extra flour, shaking out excess.
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl to combine and aerate; set aside.
  3. In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the oil and eggs until well blended. Stir in bananas, nuts, pineapple and vanilla.
  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry and stir until combined. Batter will be heavy; make sure you combine well and there are no pockets of flour left. Scrape into prepared pan and smooth top with a small offset spatula.
  5. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden skewer shows a few moist crumbs. Cool pan on rack until completely cooled. Cake is ready to frost - or serve as is, or dusted lightly with confectioners’ sugar.
  6. If using frosting, make sure it is nice and creamy and spreadable. Cover entire cake top with casual swirls of frosting, using an icing spatula or even the back of a spoon. Cake may be served immediately or stored at cool room temperature in covered container for up to 3 days.


If You Can Tolerate

  • Fructans: If you have passed your fructan wheat Challenge successfully then you can use conventional all-purpose flour made from wheat for the cake. Use weights (not volume) to figure out amounts.
