Ingredient List

Cake

  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup toffee bits

Frosting

  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Toppings

  • 2 medium bananas, cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 1 1/3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons caramel topping
  • 1/2 oz bittersweet baking chocolate bar, shaved

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Grease 9x5-inch loaf pan with shortening; lightly flour. In small bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  2. In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup softened butter and the granulated sugar with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds; increase speed to high, and beat 3 to 4 minutes or until light and fluffy, scraping bowl occasionally. Reduce speed to low; beat in eggs, one at a time, just until smooth. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. On low speed, beat in one-third of the flour mixture, then half of the milk, beating well after each addition, just until smooth. Repeat with flour mixture and milk, ending with flour mixture. Scrape side of bowl occasionally. Beat in sour cream until blended. Stir in toffee bits. Pour in pan.
  3. Bake 65 to 70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours.
  4. When ready to serve, in medium bowl, beat powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons softened butter, 1 tablespoon milk and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla with spoon until smooth and fluffy. If frosting is too stiff to spread, add additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time. Frost top of loaf. Top loaf with Toppings. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut into slices.
  5. Cover loosely, and refrigerate any remaining cake.

Tips

  • Serve with sweetened whipped cream and additional caramel sauce for extra decadence.
  • Use a vegetable peeler to shave chocolate easily.
