Banana Caramel Cake

Banana Caramel Cake ~ This Banana Caramel Cake is dense, moist and with a divine {3 ingredients ONLY} Caramel topping !

This Banana Caramel Cake will have you begging for seconds. The cake is moist and the Caramel topping is just to die for delicious !

I baked this cake {well, not the one on the photos!} on Saturday, then dropped it on the floor - once again, and this time I have no excuse - did not trip over Nahla, my wrist simply twisted and kaboom .. cake on the floor.

I did not have enough bananas and eggs leftover to make another one, and I really wanted this cake, especially after smelling the wonderful baking smell of the dropped cake.

Early Sunday morning, I got some more bananas and baked this Banana Caramel Cake, which I can now share not only the recipe, but also the photos with you.

And divine it definitely was ! The cake is a little denser than the usual Banana Cakes I bake, but I did add a little more mashed bananas to this cake.

I am a self-confessed Caramel addict {no hope of rehab for me!} and this Caramel topping is one of the best I ever made. Simple, but delicious.

Banana Caramel Cake


3/4 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Caster Sugar
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
3 Eggs
2 cups Flour
1/2 t Salt
1 1/2 t Baking Powder
2 t Ground Cinnamon
4/5 cup Sour Cream
3 Bananas, mashed

Topping :

1/2 cup Caster Sugar
1/4 cup Butter
1/2 cup Fresh Cream  {double cream}

1 Banana, sliced and Lemon juice coated


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a bundt pan with cooking oil.
2.) In a large mixing bowl, beat together the Butter, Caster Sugar and Brown Sugar until creamy - add the Eggs one-by-one, beating continuously.
3.) Sift together the Flour, Salt Baking Powder and Cinnamon - fold into the Butter/Sugar mixture.
4.) Stir in the Sour Cream and the Bananas - pour batter into the prepared bundt pan - bake 45 - 50 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
5.) Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes - remove and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
6.) Topping: Place the Caster Sugar in a small saucepan - heat until the Sugar starts to melt on the sides - add the Butter and whisk until smooth and the Butter is melted.
7.) Add the Cream and simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened - stirring continuously - remove from the heat and let cool at least 10 minutes.
8.) Drizzle the Caramel Topping over the cooled Banana Cake and decorate with Banana slices - dust with a little Ground Cinnamon if you wish.
