It's your duty. As if a sweet, moist and delicious banana cake on its own wasn’t enough, adding salted caramel to this recipe puts it right over the top! TikTok content creator @buuckfarmsbakery shows us how easy it is to make this salted caramel banana cake and leaves us with no excuses to get baking!
Wait until you see this next level banana cake you have to try!
YUM! For this recipe, cream room temperature butter and sugar using a hand mixer, then add in egg and vanilla, followed by mashed ripe bananas. Next, add 1/2 the dry ingredients, add all the buttermilk, and then the other 1/2 of dry ingredients until well incorporated but not over mixed. Spread it into a parchment lined 9”square baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-27 minutes, and voila!
And that frosting is where the magic really begins. Whip the butter, cream cheese, vanilla and gradually add the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Then, add the salted caramel, mix until silky, and spread it evenly over the cooled cake. OMG! We are so hungry!
