This banana cake is full of flavor and topped with a caramelized brown sugar + banana layer that is to die for!
This morning I woke up with a hankering for something made with bananas. I always have banana muffins on hand, but i wasn’t in the mood for those. So, I started brainstorming ideas and came up with this! The pineapple upside down cake’s (delicious) step sister. This cake is just glorious. If you are a fan of bananas, you will absolutely LOVE it. The brown sugar and butter on top caramelize beautifully, creating a gooey coating that is to die for! Not to mention, while baking, it oozes up the sides and you can see the scrumptious caramel bubbling, try to contain your excitement. The bananas also caramelize making them deliciously sweet. If I had to choose my top favorite desserts, this one would be on the list. The cake has is very moist with a punch of banana flavor, but not overwhelming at all.
I think the best thing about this cake is that if you have bananas, you most likely have everything else in your pantry! It has such simple ingredients but creates such a FANTASTIC result. The cake looks so elegant, yet it only took about 10 minutes to throw together. Nobody will believe that you didn’t spend all day on it.
Is there anything better than caramelized bananas covered in caramelized brown sugar + cake? I think not. I mean, I’m not even the biggest banana eater and I still enjoy this cake so much!
While this cake is the best served warm from the oven, just like banana bread it is just as amazing the next day, too! So, it is definitely okay to make this cake a day in advance without sacrificing taste because it only gets better! It’s also delicious warm with some vanilla ice cream on top!
Banana lovers (or not).. you need this cake in your life. Now.
