Did you think that a perfect combination of cake and fruit did not exist? This recipe for Banana Cake with Caramel Frosting is perfect because the cake is moist and soft but flavored with banana while the frosting is caramel and cream cheese. We recommend that when you make frosting you refrigerate it well so that when you have to spread it, it is easier to handle. And remember: the banana is one of the fruits that has a considerable amount of potassium.
