For the banana pecan cake:
Whisk the butter or margarine, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Sift the flour together with xanthan gum, baking powder, then whisk one third of mixture into the butter mix. Mix in the vegan eggs and agave or maple syrup. Crush bananas roughly with a fork and, by hand, mix them into the butter mixture along with pecans and the rest of the flour.
Grease the tin and lay baking paper over the longer sides of the tin. Pour the batter into the tin, sprinkle with the crumble mixture and bake for approximately 35 minutes in a fan oven at 165C. At the end of the baking time use a toothpick to make sure the cake is baked through. Leave it to cool down in the tin and remove it carefully.
You can make pecan flour yourself in a food processor - easy!
You can replace pecans for other nuts such as walnuts.
Always crush bananas just before combining them with the batter.
