Banana Bundt Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Updated: Feb 6, 2021

Do you have ripe bananas? Don't throw them away!! Bake a Banana Bundt Cake instead.

Banana Bundt Cake is a homey, old fashioned dessert. It is moist, timeless and comforting, that's why I love it!

For many years I used to bake it without glaze, until I made this Brown Sugar Glaze, a fantastic unique combination. This glaze tastes like buttery caramel praline. This quick and easy Brown Sugar Glaze is made with butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla.

Serve your cake plain, dusted with powdered sugar or if you like something extra delicious for your banana bundt cake, then try this Brown Sugar Glaze.

Both the cake and the glaze can be made easily, so if you have ripe bananas, give it a go, share and let me know!

Can I replace milk with almond or coconut milk? Yes you can!

Can I use less bananas? You can do this cake even if you have only 3 ripe bananas. The difference is not so big.

Can I use only granulated sugar? Yes you can, but double the quantity (1 cup granulated sugar)
