Caramel Pecan Banana Cake

Tresa Hargrove


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!
