Maple Bourbon Banana Pudding Cake

I wrote “Good!” on this recipe and it is really a little bit of heaven. The maple syrup, brown sugar and bourbon form a wonderful sort of puddingy glaze on top.

6 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 large ripe bananas
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Blend all these until very creamy and smooth.

1 cup flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
pinch salt

Blend the dry ingredients in a little bowl and add to the banana mixture. Gently stir until smooth. Pour into a medium-sized baking dish.

1/2 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup hot water
2 Tbsp bourbon
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Heat the syrup, brown sugar, water and bourbon in a microwave safe container for a few minutes until everything is well blended. Be careful opening the microwave as the alcohol from the bourbon can make your eyes water!

Drizzle maple glaze all over the batter. Sprinkle chopped pecans on top. Bake 40 minutes at 375.

Can double this for a larger baking pan.
