Seriously folks! This is the best banana cake you will ever have. It is super moist with a crunchy buttery/sugary topping. I had to twist an arm to get this secret family recipe from a co-worker. She would kill me if she knew I was going to share it with the rest of the world. You have tried the others, now try the best.

What a pretty cake! I had reservations about just dumping all that topping into the bottom of a bundt pan--what did SkylerFox get me into? No need to worry--a wonderful layered crust forms, providing just the right amount of sugary sweetness to a less sweet, but tasty banana cake layer. I would enjoy eating either part separately, but together they are the perfect combination. Five stars for easy, attractive and tasty.
I made this for PAC 2012. The cake part itself was really good, but a little too sweet for me, but just right for my husband who scarfed it up after getting back from a long trip. I didn't care for the topping. It caramelized and hardened so I couldn't even cut through it. Next time I make this I will make the topping and heat it on the stove and drizzle it over the cake after it's done. Thanks for posting this recipe!
