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.
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
