Banana Split Bundt

Banana Split Bundt 1.jpg text


One of my favourite things about baking is the creativity and boy did I get creative with this month’s Cake Slice Bakers bake.

Banana Split Bundt 2

My choice this month was banana split cake and whilst I stuck to the core ingredients I deviated from the fillers or add ins. See, I wasn’t really feeling the combination of pineapple and coconut along with glace cherries, so I switched things around a bit and added a different icing to the Cream cheese one that was listed, as to be honest I’m not a fan of this particular glaze.

Banana Split Bundt 3

When I think of Banana Splits I think if of banana alongside ice cream, chocolate, nuts and candy. So basing my bundt around this I’ve created this candy stuffed banana bundt with a banana butterscotch glaze.

Banana Split Bundt 4

What you’ve got yourself here is a simple banana bread recipe that has a mixture of pecans, dried cherries, butterscotch pieces, m&ms, peanut m&ms with a dash of vanilla extract and butterscotch flavouring.

Banana Split Bundt 5

A dense cake is crammed full of delicious treats which I would totally garnish my banana split with, all that’s missing from this is the ice cream.

Banana Split Bundt 6

You could add a scoop alongside this, now isn’t that food for thought.

Banana Split Bundt 7

I kept the glaze for this really low-key and simply made a quick buttermilk glaze which I flavoured with LorAnn butterscotch oil and a new to me ingredient LorAnn banana baking emulsion. You guy’s, this stuff is so so good!!

I can see myself using a lot more of this. Using a combination of this as well as the butterscotch flavouring you get a bannoffee flavoured icing. It well and truly is the icing on the cake.

Now let’s see what the other Cake Slice Bakers baked this month
