Caramel Banana Cake

Caramel Banana Cake ~ No frosting needed as this Cake is very moist and served {warm or cold} with fresh Banana and Caramel sauce ~ AND it all starts with a Cake Mix ! #BananaCake #Cake www.withablast.net

This Caramel Banana Cake is more a pudding kind of dessert than a cake, if you know what I mean. No frosting, but instead this cake is served warm with more Bananas and Caramel Sauce.

The cake is deliciously moist. I made it during the week and on a night when Dimitri was not home as well...  did not know his plans, otherwise I might have waited a day or two before making such a huge cake.

Well, I can now say that I am glad I did make it as there was quite a bit leftover {yep, not even Roy and myself can eat a whole cake by ourselves!} and it was almost better the next day.

I nibbled on a slice {or two ;-)  } during the following day and the Banana Cake on it's own, cold, was moist enough without me wanting to add anything - and I was only nibbling .... no serious dessert eating !

To re-heat the slices, I simply heated each slice for a couple of seconds in the microwave, sliced some fresh Banana and drizzled over Caramel Sauce.

Dimitri was home that following day for dinner and he actually loved he Caramel Banana Cake, which is kind of a big deal, as he normally does not like any nuts in a dish - sweet or savory.

If you like a richer color, use Yellow Cake Mix instead. We do not have the Yellow Mix in our stores and therefore I always use Vanilla.

Caramel Banana Cake

8 - 10 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

1 Box Pillsbury Vanilla Cake Mix
2 t Ground Cinnamon
3 Eggs
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil  {I use Sunflower Oil}
1 1/2 cups Very Ripe Mashed Banana
1/2 cup Pecan or Walnuts, chopped  {I used 1/4 cup of each type}

TO SERVE:

2 - 3 Bananas, sliced
Caramel Sauce of your choice

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 30cm cake tin with cooking oil.
2.) Beat together the Cake Mix, Cinnamon, Eggs, Water and Oil for 2 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl regularly - add the mashed Banana and beat another minute.
3.) Stir in the Nuts - pour batter into the prepared cake tin - bake 30 - 35 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
4.) Remove from the oven and cool until just slightly warm.

Cut into squares and serve with Banana slices and drizzled with Caramel Sauce.

The cake is just as delicious cold and keeps well in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  7. I recently started sharing recipes on The Jenny Evolution and thought it would be terrific to have a group on FB where we can share our recipes not just with other bloggers but with people who are searching out recipes. That said, I'm launching a Food Blogger group! If we work together we can make this a great outlet for all of us. If you'd like to join, visit me here https://www.facebook.com/groups/341455112700743/
