We're Going Bananas for the Royal Wedding

It’s no secret that Prince Harry and his soon-to-be wife Meghan Markle love bananas.  And why wouldn’t they!  Bananas are the most popular fruit in the world and provide vitamin B-6, potassium, vitamin C and fiber.  In honor of the couple’s upcoming wedding and their shared passion for bananas, our own Chef Mark Allison created a banana cake made for royalty.  Whether you are planning a royal wedding viewing party or just looking for a healthier dessert, this gluten-free version is sure to please!
