Banana Apple Spice Cake

Apple and Banana Spice Cake (11)

I owe you all a huge apology. I have not shared a new recipe with you for way too long, but the wait is now over. I have many excuses that I will share with you over the coming weeks but for now rest assured that I’m back on the blogging and baking wagon.

Apple and Banana Spice Cake (3)

This Banana Apple Spice Cake is a super simple cake adaptation of my very versatile Banana Bread. It’s essentially the same recipe baked in an 18 or 20 cm ring tin cake then topped and tailed with Caramel Sauce. I really really love Caramel Sauce so I decided to get my fill by glazing both the top and the bottom of the cake, just to make sure every mouthful gets its fair share. If you don’t have an unhealthy caramel addiction then this cake can be served minus the sauce….and often with whipped coconut cream.
