Banana Caramel Cake

Today I baked this lovely looking cake for my neighbour Suzie, she brings me over farm fresh eggs from her parents farm in Yackandanda. I like that we trade products I only wish it happened more often with others in the neighbourhood. I can see grapes growing from the man who lives behind us, I may have to offer up some veggies from my garden.


110g butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 bananas, peeled, halved lengthways
2 eggs
1 tbs golden syrup
3/4 cup plain flour
1/3 cup S/R Flour
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 180c lightly grease loaf pan and line with baking paper.
Combine 10g butter, 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tbs cold water in saucepan oven medium heat. cook stirring until dissolved. bring to boil. Cook for 3 minutes until thickened. Pour into cake pan.
Cut bananas in half, trim to fit pan, place cut side down over syrup.
Beat remaining butter and sugar for 5 minutes until fluffy, add 1 egg at a time until combined, stir in golden syrup and half the flours and milk until just combined. Then stir in remaining flours and milk. Spread mixture over bananas. bake for 1 hour. Stand in pan for 5 minutes then turn out on wire rack to cool.
