This cake is amazing! Moist, decadent, and addictive. I have made it several times, and my family and friends fight over it. My neighbor, Ryan hordes and rations it to make it last, although he swears he could eat it in one sitting.

I found it and adapted it from twirlandtaste.com.

Ingredients

CAKE

1 box
white cake mix (i used duncan hines)
1 small
box of instant vanilla pudding
1/2 c
vegetable oil
4 large
eggs
3/4 c
water (remove 2 teaspoons and replace with extract)
1-2 tsp
banana extract (i use 2)
1 c
mashed bananas (the riper the better, black is good!)
1/2 c
chopped pecans, toasted

BANANA BUTTER SAUCE

1 c
sugar
1/4 c
water
1 tsp
banana extract
1 stick
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare Bundt pan by brushing with vegetable oil with pastry brush, and then lightly flour. I use Wilton Cake Release instead of oil and flour.
2
Using a mixer on low speed mix together cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs, water and extract for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and mix for until well blended; approx. 1 minute. Add bananas and mix an additional minute.
3
Stir in toasted pecans. Pour batter into prepared pan. Note: Many of my family members dislike nuts. As a compromise I add the toasted pecans after I pour batter into bundt pan, so they are easily removed. This cake is delicious without the nuts.
4
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven.
5
Make Banana Butter Sauce:

Add sugar, water, banana and butter in a small pan and heat. Do not boil. Remove from heat and add banana extract; stir. While the cake is still hot and in the pan, pour sauce over the cake. Allow cake to cool in the pan.
6
When cake has cooled. Place cake platter over the top of the cake, and carefully invert the cake and allow the cake to release from pan onto the platter. Gently lift pan off of the cake. Voila!
7
Enjoy!
