Usually when I have ripe bananas my go to recipe is Banana Chocolate Chip muffins but without my boys around to consume a dozen muffins in an afternoon there was no need for a double batch. Which meant I had enough bananas for another sweet treat.
For some reason I wanted to bake a Banana Bundt cake and I came across this delicous and easy recipe on ‘A Latte Food’ blog by Michelle. And, anything with caramel glaze to adorne it must be fabulous, right?
Whether you enjoy for dessert, breakfast or an afternoon snack, just enjoy. Take a few minutes with your coffee/tea and sit and savour the flavours. Don’t waste time, start mashing those ripe bananas and preheat your oven! With approximately 14 servings you can spread a little love slice by slice.
Caramel Glazed Banana Bundt Cake
Preheat oven to 350F and grease a bundt pan.
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup mashed banana
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
In a large bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add in sugars and beat until combined. Add in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Slowly add to the creamed mixture and mix until combined.
Add in the banana, sour cream, milk andvanilla mixing until combined.
Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and smoothe the top with an offset spatula. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Caramel Glaze Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup icing sugar
Caramel Glaze Method:
Melt butter and brown sugar in small saucepan over low heat. Add in vanilla and cream and mix until combined. Whisk in the icing sugar.
Once combined, let it sit for about 10 minutes to thicken up. Spoon or drizzle over cooled cake.
(If glaze hardens up before your cake is ready you can warm it over a low hear, stirring, until spreadable.)
Last, but not least, enjoy!!
