This moist, delicious layered banana cake has a heavenly caramel and pecan icing. A delightful treat!
I omitted nuts. This banana cake is OUT OF THIS WORLD. The caramel topping is a cross between frosting and glaze. I brought it to bubbling then poured over the cake and placed it under the broiler for a few minutes. I used more banana than the recipe called for and it came out very moist. (very ripe bananas as well) - 06 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Lightly fragrant, moist, and soft. But this recipe seems to be missing some flavoring ingredients. I subbed cake flour for all purpose, used 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp margarine, 1/4 cup less sugar, and sour cream for the buttermilk. Also added 1/4 cup raisins, 1/2 tsp vanilla and coconut extract and omitted the frosting, it's sweet enough as is. Next time I'll add some cinnamon and 1/4 tsp salt too. Also, the cake is much better a day or two after baking. - 22 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this recipe with my exchange student and it turned out wonderful! I'm sure it would have been even better if I'd had a candy thermometer for the icing but, hey, it still worked out. It was great even a couple days after and I'm not sure about after that because it became very addicting. - 01 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
