Sticky Banana Cake

Posted on March 2, 2018 in Cakes

This Sticky Banana Cake is a beautiful dessert perfect for special occasions or even just because…

The brown sugar and butter combined with the natural banana flavor creates an irresistible topping that oozes ooey gooey deliciousness in every bite!

To make the topping you simply combine melted butter with brown sugar and spread that evenly onto the bottom of your cake pan. Top with sliced bananas and cake batter and bake.

Banana bread is a great way of using overripe bananas, but what if you want to turn your bananas into an Instagram-worthy dessert or an everyday treat instead? This brown sugar-glazed, cinnamon-scented sticky banana cake is the most delicious way to bring bananas to brunch or an after-dinner dessert.

For the topping
  1. 80g unsalted butter
  2. 150g light muscovado sugar
  3. ½ tsp vanilla bean paste
  4. 4 large bananas
  5. For the cake batter
  6. 240g plain flour
  7. 2 ½ tsp baking powder
  8. 1 tsp cinnamon
  9. ½ tsp ground ginger
  10. 300g golden caster sugar
  11. 120g unsalted butter, very soft
  12. 3 large eggs
  13. 150ml soured cream
  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and lightly grease a deep 23cm round cake tin, lining the base with baking parchment.
  2. To make the topping, put the butter and sugar in a small saucepan and cook over a medium heat until melted and combined. Add the vanilla and mix together. Pour the caramel into the cake tin and spread in an even layer. Cut the bananas in half lengthways and arrange on top of the caramel, cut-side down.
  3. To make the batter, put all the ingredients in a large bowl with 1/4 tsp salt. Use an electric mixer to beat together on a low speed until the batter is smooth and evenly mixed. Pour the batter on top of the bananas and level out with a spatula. Bake in the oven for 55 mins-1 hr or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. If the cake begins to look too dark, cover with foil after 45 mins. Allow to cool in the tin for 10 mins before turning out onto a plate. Best served warm but also delicious at room temperature. Best eaten within 2 days.
