DIRECTIONS

  • Brown sugar in large pot until sugar melts.
  • NOTE: Add just enough water to make a heavy syrup (I had to give an amt!).
  • Pour syrup into Bundt pan and turn to spread over bottom and sides.
  • Slice bananas length-wise into four thin slices; sprinkle with cinnamon; lay banana slices up the sides of the bundt pan (outside and center).
  • NOTE: According to Lucia, don't sprinkle cinnamon on the "outside" of the bananas as it turns it dark.
  • CAKE: Mix together 3 egg yolks, butter, and sugar; beat til light.
  • Stir in milk, flour, & baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; fold into cake batter.
  • Bake at 375 until cake is done (toothpick comes out clean).
  • NOTE: Lucia said to bake for 20 minutes but it may take longer.
  • Let cool in pan; carefully invert onto cake plate/serving platter.
  • "Slice the cake and delight in it's taste" - Lucia Ceresini 10-28-98.
