Caramel Banana Pecan Cake, a delicious Cake recipe perfect as a snack or Drizzle with Caramel to make an after dinner Dessert.
Back in Italy…
Apparently there was an incredible heat wave in Italy, to tell the truth I missed most of it, but not all of it.
I was told it hit 50 degrees celsius, I can’t imagine, all I know is that I haven’t slept through the night since I got back because it is so hot.
Banana Pecan Cake
Sorry I just had to share that, now back to bananas.
I love bananas, I buy lots of bananas. And needless to say when I came back from Canada I had a few over ripe Bananas. I think my husband let them go ripe on purpose!
So what can a person do? Bake a Banana Cake and make the house even hotter is what I usually do.
The Italian loves Banana anything so this cake was right up his alley.
