Awesome! We inhaled this for dessert tonight. I love pudding cakes: they're generally low fat, quick to make, and can be prepared in the oven while the main course is baking. Pudding cakes have a cakey top and a sauce underneath, they are not typical cakes, and are best served warm. Banana is a great variation, and this definitely goes into my Banana Rama cookbook as I'm always trying to get rid of overripe bananas. Lots of sauce with this one which complimented the banana cake nicely. Whipped cream would be good, but is not necessary. I left out the pecans cause the kids don't like them. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!
I was really excited to try this because I love pudding cakes and had never tried a banana one. I liked the cake part of this but was a little disappointed by the caramel part. It was more like a sugar sauce than a caramel sauce and I wasn't expecting that. The cake was moist and flavorful and I might play around with the recipe later.
