I am so thrilled, in less than a year I am posting my 100th blog entry.

It’s been an adventurous journey and I felt it was the right time to revive my Make & Eat section of the blog. There’s no better way to celebrate than eat a cake and even better, if it’s homemade.

Since I was baking after a long time, I wanted to make a cake that would turn out to be perfect. Some months ago, I had made Banana Walnut Cake and the moist, rich, soft sponge with crunchy walnuts tasted divine. The flavours in this cake and the comfort it brought along made me revisit the recipe.

The apron was on and I found myself mashing bananas.

While I was making the batter, I was certain about not covering the cake into cream or cheese as the cake is so delicious in itself. And Then I thought there’s nothing that tastes better than banana, cream and toffee together.

Hence, I decided to make it with caramel frosting.

So here’s a recipe for the cake that I am currently crushing over.

FOR THE SPONGE:

Butter 75 grams
Breakfast Sugar 75 grams
Milk 2 TBSP
Chopped Banana 1
Walnuts 40 grams
Baking Powder ½ TSP
Egg 2
Golden Syrup 1 TBSP
Flour 85 grams

METHOD

  • In a bowl cream butter and breakfast sugar together.
  • In the same mix add one egg at a time, slowly and gradually.
  • Sift the flour.
  • Add baking powder into the flour.
  • Mix all the above-mentioned wet ingredients together.
  • In the mix add golden syrup, milk and mashed banana.
  • Add dry ingredients and fold everything together gently.
  • Grease the mold and line it with a butter paper.
  • Pour the batter and bake it at 130 Degree Celsius for half an hour.

FOR THE CARAMEL:

Breakfast Sugar 90 grams
Butter 60 grams
Cooking cream 40 grams
Liquid glucose 1 TSP
Water 1 TSP

METHOD

  • Caramelise the breakfast sugar on the gas and ass 1-teaspoon water into it.
  • Add cooking cream into the caramelised sugar.
  • Once that’s mixed properly add butter and liquid glucose, mix all the ingredients.

FOR THE FROSTING

  • Mix the caramel with the whipped cream and keep it to cool. Add some of the crunch of caramel in the cream.

If you want to spend some quality time with the family during the weekend, make this cake. Sit on the couch, play a movie and indulge in this luscious cake. That’s my perfect idea of a celebration.
