Okay! Straight up keepin' it real here...
This photo doesn't do justice to the amazing deliciousness of this little cake.
It's all my fault. I crave banana sweetness, I make cake, then I rush to eat cake. I snapped one single solitary photo of this cake before I got busy eating it.
That slice. The big fat one you see up there. It was my late afternoon snack. It was worth it and I don't have any regrets. I went on to have several more slices over the next day or two, and I don't regret them either. The cake was so good! Like a perfect slice of banana bread topped with....with...oh my gosh, you are going to die!...creamy (as in cream cheese) caramel frosting! Snap!
You need to make this cake. It's the perfect size! A tall and lovely 9 inch round. It's just right for dessert tonight, especially if you have ripe bananas ready to be used up.
If you are a Dulce de Leche fan, you might like these naughty nuggets too!
