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!!
