Okies... enough excitement lol.. this banana foster cake was baked this morning.. the first time i had a bite was when i met my blogger buddies in KL.. Shidah had baked each of us this cake and the moment i had a bite... i knew that i will be baking for my family.. so since i had like a few bananas lying helplessly in my kitchen.. i decided to gv this wonderful recipe a try.. the cake is super moist.. not overly sweet and the topping... the crunchy caramelized topping.. uh la laaaa... am not ashamed to admit that i did the unthinkable of scraping all the topping in my bundt pan and munching it away...I hate wastage.. u see!! hahaha
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Stick unsalted butter, at room temperature (I used 150gram)
1/2 Stick unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 Cups light brown sugar, divided
2 Teaspoons vanilla 2 Eggs
1 Cup buttermilk
2 Banana, peeled and sliced
3 Bananas, mashed
1/4 Cup walnuts, chopped (I substituted with chopped almond)
Butter and flour a 12 cup bundt pan. Pour the melted butter into the bottom, sprinkle on 1/2 cup of the sugar, layer on the sliced banana and top with the chopped nuts.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the remaining sugar and room temperature butter. Add eggs and beat until well incorporated. Mix in the mashed bananas and vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture, alternately with buttermilk in 2 addition. Mix for another 2 minutes until everything is fully incorporated.
Pour the batter over the walnuts in the bundt pan and bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool thoroughly in the pan (allow a couple of hours) before turning the cake out onto a plate or stand.
