For the Banana Cake:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2-3 bananas)
1/2 cup buttermilk

For the Caramel Sauce:

1 cup granulated sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream
To Assemble:
Sliced bananas for garnish

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
Add the mashed bananas and mix until combined.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, alternating with buttermilk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the caramel sauce, heat the sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until it melts and turns a deep amber color. Carefully add the butter and stir until melted. Slowly pour in the heavy cream, continuing to stir until the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
To assemble, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a generous amount of caramel sauce on top. Add the second cake layer and pour more caramel sauce over the top, allowing it to drip down the sides.
Garnish with sliced bananas.
