Banana Cake with Caramel Sauce - IHCC Featuring Donna Hay

When I get a new kitchen toy I have to play with it immediately. A square bundt pan was my newest acquisition so a cake was in the offing. Its flavour was dictated by the bunch of bananas ripening faster than we could eat them and Donna Hay, I Heart Cooking Clubs' featured chef for June, had the perfect recipe.
The butter cake batter was made in the typical fashion with the usual baking pantry ingredients and enriched with sour cream and bananas, of course.
The cake was dense but moist, rich in banana flavour and imbued with cinnamon. It was very good on its own but the easy caramel sauce of cooked cream and brown sugar added a special touch, something this Australian cook is known for.

Hi Zosia,
I have never seen a square bundt pan like yours! And I do have a new toy too! A Nordicware rose bundt pan I bought a few weeks ago which I'm hoping to use very soon. Your banana cake with the caramel sounds divine!

That pan makes for such a stunning presentation for this cake and the caramel sauce just takes a simple banana cake to the next level. Yum! ;-)

I love the design that pan makes on top of the cake, so pretty. And banana cake with caramel sauce would be terrific.
