The most moist and flavorful banana cake with a delicious, sweet glaze.
Happy monday everyone! Oh man, do I have a good one for you today. You guys, I could pretty much eat this cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner and not even feel an ounce of guilt about it. I mean.. bananas + maple syrup = breakfast.. so there’s that. Everyone loves a good piece of banana bread and this cake reminds me so much of that! A much lighter, fluffier banana bread. Consider this banana bread in cake form. It’s chock full of bananas making it ultra-moist and sweet from all of the banana goodness and lots of spicy flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. I LOVE adding these spices to banana recipes because they all pair so incredibly well together.
This recipe is one I’ve been coming up with for some time. I love a good banana cake so I knew I wanted it to be as flavorful and moist as possible. With all of those bananas, spices and brown sugar, you know it’s going to be good. Now, the cake is crazy flavorful on it’s own but paired with the brown sugar maple glaze (adapted from this recipe) – HOLY CRAP, it’s good. I think I should just live in a place where Fall weather is all year round because Fall(ish) flavors are everything! Or I guess I could just make spiced things all year round, but that takes the fun out of Fall baking. Why am i talking about Fall baking already anyway? It’s like 90 degrees and humid out.
Anyways, if you love cake and are a fellow banana bread lover, you will LOVE this banana bundt cake with maple brown sugar glaze.
