Here is a simple recipe for banana cake - a perfect way to take care of those bananas that have become a little too ripe. In this particular case, I choose to throw on a whole lot of caramel sauce and whipped cream to make it all a dessert, but of course you can eat the cake as it is without extra accessories.

It is a bit difficult to measure exactly how much 2 bananas are, but I aim for it to be 250 grams when I weigh after the bananas are peeled. With peels, it was up to 400 grams when I bought them, but then they had to stay a few days at my house and ripe as well.

I usually slice these up and save in the fridge or freeze and simply take a slice when I'm hungry. If you want a little bit of luxury, you can cut them as cake-pieces instead and cover with a lot of caramel sauce (dulce de leche) and whipped cream - it will be almost like a small dessert then.

There are a lot of different varieties. I have tried adding some dark chocolate and walnuts which turned out really good.
