Banana Caramel Pudding Cake

Oxmoor House
Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 40 mins
Yield

10 servings (serving size: 1/10 of cake and 2 tablespoons ice cream)

This cake is similar to a very decadent banana bread with the addition of rich caramel flavor. The texture is wonderfully moist- not quite cake, and not quite pudding. It's already done cooking when the center springs back to the touch. Serve while still warm with vanilla ice cream. 

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (about 1 banana)
  • 1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 1/4 cups vanilla fat-free ice cream
