But then I decided to save us both time and make this nifty flowchart instead! Just answer the questions below and find out if you should be headed to the kitchen to make Caramel Banana Bundt Cake!

Banana Caramel Bundt Cake
This banana bundt cake is easy to make, looks stunning on a serving table, and is drizzled with our silky salted caramel sauce.
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 large extra ripe bananas, smashed
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup caramel sauce, homemade
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a large bundt pan, or use a cooking spray that includes flour, like Baker’s Joy.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugars. Beat on medium high speed, scraping the bowl down occasionally, until the mixture is lighter in color and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Add the bananas and beat on low until combined.
- Add half of the flour mixture to the mixer and beat on low. Add the buttermilk and beat again, scraping the bowl as needed. Add the remaining flour mixture and beat on low until just combined, then increase the speed to medium and beat until smooth and well combined, about 1 minute.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60-65 minutes, covering the top with foil at the 40 minute mark. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Allow the cake to cool for 10-15 minutes, then loosen any edges and invert onto a cooling rack to complete cooling.

This Banana Caramel Bundt Cake is delicious! We added one cup of dates, reduced the sugar to 1 cup and used equal parts white flour, wheat flour and almond flour. It’s one of the moistest cakes I’ve made – a real show stopper! Thanks so much for the recipe.
I’m so glad you enjoyed this! I might have to try the date substitution next time. Thanks for sharing!
This is one of our favourite Sunday cakes I put a slice on a plate with whipping cream and drizzle carmel sauce over it yummy and looks nice to.
That’s so wonderful! Thanks for coming back to let me know!
Hi! Just found your blog and it was amazing! 🙂
Can I substitute oil for the butter? Because I want to make one using anything I got on hand now
Thanks! I’ve never tried subbing oil for the butter. I think it might adversely affect the texture, but you can always experiment and see what happens! Here’s little article I found on subbing oil for butter. Hope it helps: http://www.myrecipes.com/how-to/cooking-questions/substitute-oil-butter-margarine-00420000013251/
This is delicious! I am so tempted to make this 🙂
You definitely should! It’s so tasty. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
