This Gluten Free Banana Butterscotch Pecan Cake is easy to love. It has delicious layers of Banana Bread Style Cake and Creamy Butterscotch Filling and is topped off with Tasty Candied Pecans.  It’s really easy to make and is a great way to use up any over ripe Bananas. If you don’t have 2 round cake pans you could make the Banana Butterscotch Pecan Cake in a large lasagna style pan then ice it in the pan, instead of layering it.

6. Mix the instant pudding with the milk, until well combined. Gently stir in the whipped cream. Mix until smooth.

  1. It’s amazing that this cake is made with mostly rice flour. I’ve only really started liking baked stuff after I started a gluten-free diet. I think that other flours, especially whole grains, have so much more character, and have more to offer in terms of depth of flavor.

  2. Butterscotch is my favorite ice cream flavor. How can it not be delicious along with pecans in a cake. Absolutely love this cake and something for me to try this weekend 🙂
