Scrumptious Gluten-Free Banana Pound Cake April 29, 2010

I made the most fabulous gluten-free dessert yesterday… A gluten-free banana pound cake!!! It was ridiculously good and so incredibly moist my husband had a really hard time believing it was gluten-free! Truly, this is one of the best gluten-free desserts I’ve ever made.

Try this super-fabulous treat the next time your in the mood for a delicious treat. It also makes a great tea-time dessert! Invite a few friends, bust out the tea pot, and serve this yummy cake warm or cold.
