Mini Banana Cake

Just the perfect size to enjoy a piece of cake.  We made these Nutella Stuffed Mini Banana Cake using mini bundt pans for individual serving.  We put a dollop of Nutella spread in the center of these cakes and topped it with smooth and creamy Whipped Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting!  This cake is perfect for any celebrations and you'd never know it's gluten-free!
