How to Bake a Moist and Delicious Butterscotch Banana Cake

This butterscotch banana cake is sweetinside and out, with a velvety soft texture and a thick ribbon of cinnamon sugar swirled within, and a butterscotch drizzle on top.

This butterscotch banana cake is made with only a few ingredients and is sweet enough to serve as a dessert, but it also works well as a breakfast snack.

How does butterscotch taste?

Butterscotch is a delicious ingredient that may be found in a variety of cookies, cakes, and sweets. Brown sugar and butter are the essential ingredients in butterscotch; however other ingredients like corn syrup, cream, vanilla, and salt may be used in some recipes. Butterscotch is similar to toffee, except the sugar in butterscotch is heated to the soft crack stage rather than the hard crack stage as in toffee.

Ingredients

3/4 cup butterscotch chips

2 cups flour

3 overripe bananas, mashed

1 egg

1/2 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

Procedure

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the bananas in a bowl and mash them with a potato masher until they are completely mashed, then set them aside.

In a large bowl, whisk tog mashed bananas, eggs, vegetable oil, and sugar until well incorporated.

In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Mix the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder until everything is well blended.

Fold in butterscotch chips into the cake batter and mix until well combined.

Line your baking pan with parchment paper, pour the mixture into it, and put it in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bake for 55 - 60 minutes or until the top is golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Use oven mitts to take out the banana cake from the oven, then let it cool down in the cake tin for 10 minutes.

Remove the banana cake from the tin and place it on a cooling rack in order to completely cool before you layer and decorate.

Tips for baking a butterscotch banana cake

For the best flavor, use ripe bananas. Hard yellow or greenish bananas are overly starchy and have less banana flavor than ripe bananas, which are soft and generally yellow with little black spots.

If butterscotch is too sweet for the cake, try a 50/50 mixture of butterscotch and semi-sweet chocolate chips since the semi-sweet chocolate helps balance out the butterscotch's overall sweetness.

You can also add chopped walnuts or chopped pecans to this recipe to vary the flavor and texture of the butterscotch banana bread. To produce a fantastic butterscotch banana nut bread, use 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1/2 cup butterscotch chips instead of 1 cup.

When preparing butterscotch banana bread, you can use a 50/50 blend of light brown sugar and white granulated sugar for an even richer taste and a little more moistness.

The melting point of butterscotch chips is lower than that of semi-sweet chocolate chips. As a result, it'll likely melt and stick to your baking tin. To prevent the butterscotch chips from sticking to the cake pan during the baking process, grease the tin with butter or vegetable oil.

Make sure to line your pan with baking parchment paper so that you can easily lift the banana bread out.

Because butterscotch chips melt fast, they should only be used on the inside of the banana cake. Adding them to the outside before baking will cause them to melt and run, resulting in a messy cake.

Conclusion

The butterscotch taste perfectly complements the banana cake with a buttery caramel flavor, and it's a refreshing twist from regular banana bread. You can substitute butterscotch with white chocolate morsels or dark chocolate.
