How to Make Banana Cake with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13x9 inch baking pan.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. Beat butter and granulated sugar in large bowl of electric mixer on high speed until light, 2 minutes; add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Stop the mixer and add bananas, sour cream and vanilla; mix in on low speed.
  5. Fold in the dry ingredients and nuts with a rubber spatula.
  6. Transfer batter to prepared pan; bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes.

  9. Reduce heat to low and add butter; cook and stir until melted.
