Wheat/sugar free banana and date cake

8oz/250g/one and a half cups of wheat free flour
2 tsp baking powder
7 or 8 large dates, soaked
half a cup of water
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup of rice milk
half a cup of sunflower oil
1 tablespoon of vinegar

Mix the flour and baking powder. Liquidise the soaked dates in the half cup of water until fairly thick and smooth. Add the date mixture to the flour along with the rice milk, oil and bananas. Mix well - you may need to add a little more water or rice milk as wheat free flours do vary greatly and tend to absorb more liquid than wheat. Add the vinegar at the last minute and then pour into 9"/18cm cake tin and bake at 190C/380F for about 40 minutes or until cooked through.
