This Gluten-Free Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake topped with incredibly delicious coffee walnut glaze is amazing! Let’s be real -> we all love comfort food, especially during stressful times.

For me, baking is therapeutic and satisfying. The aroma of freshly baked chocolate cake makes everything better. Ordinarily, I bake special desserts on weekends, but today is the day when comfort food like this chocolate cake is just what was needed.

So how did I come up with this chocolate banana bundt cake recipe?

It all started in the morning when I saw two overly ripe bananas on my kitchen counter. Hmm, I thought what can I make with over ripe bananas. Did you know that a fully brown banana is full of antioxidants?

I love using ripe bananas in dessert recipes because I can cut back on the sweeteners. So I thought ok what goes well with bananas. For me, it is chocolate and walnuts, two of my favourite ingredients in a desert.

So I created this beautiful gluten-free and grain-free chocolate banana bundt cake. I added a little maple syrup for additional sweetness, pure cocoa and plenty of walnuts. The cake tastes almost like a brownie, so the bundt cake turned out perfect.

But I didn’t stop there because I wanted to make the gluten-free bundt cake even more delicious.

 

 

The best way to improve this already delicious dessert was by adding a coffee walnut glaze. The glaze tastes like caramel coffee with walnuts… it is so darn good! This incredibly good coffee walnut glaze turned a simple bundt cake into the best coffee cake ever! Trust me on this, you will love this dessert.
