Caramel Pecan Banana Cake
By Tresa Hargrove TresaKitchen
Growing up in rural Oklahoma we had the only banana tree for miles. I took great care watering and weeding around it that when it didn't make any bananas the 1st year I was very upset. The next summer, My Uncle Roy, being the family trickster bought some bananas, put them on the tree and told me they grew over night. Of course I believed everything Uncle Roy told me. Mom made a banana bundt cake an with the fruit and I savored every single bite. I came up with this recipe in honor of my dad and uncle, who have since passed. Oh yes Uncle Roy also had me watering a round rock that grew too!
Caramel, bananas AND pecans? What an amazing flavor combination... Why had we never thought to try this before?! Great recipe, Tresa!

The 8 toasted pecans should be halved not chopped!

I have a question - in Step 11 you mention rum - but I don't see where you list how much rum. This recipe sounds delicious!

Carla when I was testing this recipe I used rum, but it made the top of the cake way to moist! I had it wrote down in my notes and typed it by mistake! This is a very good cake!
