Banana Cake with Caramel Cheese Frosting

2 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Baking soda
Pinch salt
1/2 c (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 c Granulated sugar
2 lg Eggs
1 c Mashed, ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/4 c Sour cream
1 ts Pure vanilla extract
1/2 c Chopped pecans

Caramel Glaze

1/4 c Packed brown sugar
1/4 c Sweetened condensed milk
2 tb Unsalted butter
1 c Confectioners' sugar
1 ts Pure vanilla extract


3 oz Cream cheese, softened
6 tb Unsalted butter, softened
1 tb Sour cream
1 tb Pure maple syrup
1 ts Pure vanilla extract
3 To 3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13- by 9-inch baking pan.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

Beat butter and granulated sugar in large bowl of electric mixer on high speed until light, 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stop the mixer and add bananas, sour cream and vanilla. Mix in on low speed. Fold in the dry ingredients and nuts with a rubber spatula.

Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack.

For caramel glaze:
Combine brown sugar and condensed milk in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until mixture begins to bubble. Reduce heat to low and add butter; cook and stir until melted.

Remove from the heat and stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Spread over cooled cake.

For frosting:
Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Stir in sour cream, maple and vanilla. Add enough confectioners' sugar to make a smooth, thick frosting. Carefully spread over Caramel Glaze.
