This moist and tender banana cake is filled with warm flavors and topped with a sweet and decadent toffee sauce. Serve with chopped bananas and pecans.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 5 minutes
Total: 1 hour 25 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • cupsall purpose flour,spooned into measuring cup and leveled off with a knife
  • 1tspbaking powder
  • 1tspbaking soda
  • ¼tspsalt
  • 1stickunsalted butter,(½ cup), melted and slightly cooled
  • ¾cupsugar
  • 2largeeggs
  • 1cupvery ripe bananas,mashed
  • 2tbspfresh lemon juice
  • tspvanilla extract
  • cupsheavy whipping cream
  • ½cupdark brown sugar
  • ½cuplight corn syrup
  • 4tbspunsalted butter
  • pinchsalt
  • perfectly ripe bananas,sliced
  • pecans,chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8×8-inch baking dish.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix the melted butter and sugar until blended. Add the eggs, mashed bananas, lemon juice and vanilla extract and mix well.

  4. On low speed, stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Do not over mix.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes until golden, and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

  6. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Bring the heavy cream, brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, and salt to a boil in a heavy small saucepan over high heat, whisking until the sugar dissolves.

  7. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook at a gentle boil for about 15 minutes, whisking occasionally, until the sauce is slightly thickened. It should be the consistency of maple syrup — it will continue to thicken as it cools. Remove the sauce from the heat and cool.

  8. Spoon ⅓ cup of the toffee sauce over top of the baked banana cake. Return the cake to the oven and bake for about 6 minutes until the sauce is bubbling vigorously.

  9. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for at least 30 minutes. Cut the cake into 9 squares or 12 rectangles.

  10. Serve the cake slightly warm or at room temperature with warm toffee sauce and top with sliced bananas and pecans, if desired.
