Wow! Needed a home for 4 softened black bananas I just did not want to waste (& DH had expressed skepticism anything could be done with). Did the cinnamon sugar (3:1) & heaping 1/2 cup of pecans (add more). Used some freshly grated nutmeg in the caramel icing - to die for! This is far better than any banana bread (I'm not so much a fan of banana bread) & so easy to make! Thanks for the keeper, Charmed! Perfect home for over ripe bananas!
This is a nice, moist cake. On its own, it wouldn't stand out from any of the other banana cake recipes I have tried. However, the caramel icing gives it a whole other dimension. The recipe makes a LOT of icing. I couldn't use all of it for glazing the cake without it overflowing so I have saved what I couldn't use to drizzle on cinnamon rolls.
