Banana Cake With Honey Cream & Caramel

This is a relative easy recipe to produce an amazing 3 layer cake.

Banana cakes are a favourite of many people and this is a wonderfully moist cake offset by a mildly sweet cream with a subtle honey flavour that perfectly complements the banana.  The caramel sauce on top simply adds another burst of sweetness into the mix.

The banana cake itself is really easy and quick to mix and get ready to bake.  Most of the effort is in the layering of the cream and topping with the caramel sauce.

All that effort is really worthwhile when you can produce this superb cake.  Given that bananas are a healthy food item, I think it is OK to have second slice!!
