Caramel Pecan Banana Cake

Growing up in rural Oklahoma we had the only banana tree for miles. I took great care of 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 overnight. Of course, I believed everything Uncle Roy told me. Mom made a banana Bundt cake 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?! This Bundt cake starts with a boxed cake mix. It's very impressive when served, no one would guess how easy it was to make. It's packed with banana and pecan flavor. Great recipe, Tresa! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
