I am in love with bundt cake, dunno why.. Maybe sebab bundt cake sangat senang nak buat. Today I am going to have lunch with K.Teh kat Dome Midvalley. K.Teh cakap, kalau on Friday boleh lepak lama2 sebab her lunch hour panjang sikit. Maka, langkah aku pun panjang la jugak .. hehe.. Hubby bengkek je sebab aku kena tinggalkan dia sorang2 kat rumah. He is on MC sebab tak sihat.
This is one of the best bundt cake ever. Aku suka softness of the cake, it's not dry at all, very moist and not sweet. Rasa manis tu just enough. Aku tak payah reduced the sugar. And the best part is the nutty caramalised banana. Peh!! it does make a LOT of difference :)
Banana Foster Bundt Cake
Adapted from Hungry Couple
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Stick unsalted butter, at room temperature (I used 150gram)
1/2 Stick unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 Cups light brown sugar, divided
2 Teaspoons vanilla
1 Cup buttermilk
2 Banana, peeled and sliced
3 Bananas, mashed
1/4 Cup walnuts, chopped (I substituted with chopped almond)
Butter and flour a 12 cup bundt pan. Pour the melted butter into the bottom, sprinkle on 1/2 cup of the sugar, layer on the sliced banana and top with the chopped nuts.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the remaining sugar and room temperature butter. Add eggs and beat until well incorporated. Mix in the mashed bananas and vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture, alternately with buttermilk in 2 addition. Mix for another 2 minutes until everything is fully incorporated.
Pour the batter over the walnuts in the bundt pan and bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool thoroughly in the pan (allow a couple of hours) before turning the cake out onto a plate or stand.
