I have been making this cake for my son’s birthday for years as it is his absolute favourite… and one of mine too!

Mixing batter for caramel banana cake recipe

Overripe bananas are the best to use when baking. To make sure you always have perfect baking bananas on hand, a good tip is to pop them in the freezer when they start to look a bit sad. When you’re ready to bake some banana goodies – like this tasty Caramel Banana Cake or my Chocolate Banana Muffins – you can simply pull them out of the freezer and you’re good to go.

FYI – This batter tastes sooo good!!

I have made this cake twice now and both times it has dropped because it’s not cooked properly. I am wondering if the temperature and time is correct? It’s a delicious cake but I get disappointed when it drops.

Oh what a shame Megan. I would suggest baking your cake at a slightly higher temp (temperatures can differ between ovens) and leave it for the full 40 minutes. Opening the oven door too early can also cause cakes to fall in the middle. I hope this helps. Kat x
