  9. remove from the pan and let cool on a cooling rack, serve as desired (e.g. with nut puree or jam) or simply enjoy without topping
Remarks
¹ Alternatively, you can also use other (gluten-free) (wholemeal) flours. Adjust the amount of water if necessary. However, I prefer to use whole wheat flour to prepare the cake as nutritious as possible.
² It is best to try a small amount of the dough and see if the bananas are ripe enough for you or if some additional sweetness is needed. Alternatively, you can use other sugar.
³ I use a foldable silicone loaf pan with the measurements 25 x 9 x 6 cm.

The bread keeps in the refrigerator airtight packed several days. Alternatively, you can also freeze it and defrost it, for example, in slices. So it keeps about 4-6 weeks.
