    26 Banana Toffee Cake

    I’m a big fan of toffee or salted caramel… I’m also a huge fan of pudding cakes, such as my Sticky Date Pudding, that I absolutely heart to the max! Perhaps it’s the sticky and gooey texture that I really enjoy, or that fluffy yet moist cake that acts like a sponge, soaking up all that delicious sauce. Whatever the reason is, this 2 dessert recipes are the ones that I highly recommend you give it a try.

    The first time I had this cake was when I was dining at Gorden Ramsay’s restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen. I remembered the first bite I took, it literally took my breath away. I closed my eyes, gathered enough strength in me not to melt away, and whispered a “wow”. I could not get enough of the cake! Although, I have to be honest that I don’t quite fancy the sauce. It was a little too thick, kind of gooey and starchy like in consistency. But the cake was amaze-balls!

    So I got home and started researching on sticky banana toffee cake, tried a few. Made a few different sauces to go with it. And here I am. The perfect combination. Try it, and try not to fall in love with it. It is humanly impossible not to.
