    1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Butter two 20cm sandwich tins and line with non-stick baking paper. In a large bowl, beat all the cake ingredients together including the vanilla extract and 2 mashed, ripe bananas, until you have a smooth, soft batter.

    2. Divide the mixture between the tins, smooth the surface with a spatula or the back of a spoon, then bake for about 20 mins until golden and the cake springs back when pressed. Turn onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely.

    3. For the filling, whip the double cream and fold through the Banoffee toffee. To serve, spread half of the cream over one of the cakes, then top with another sliced banana.

    4. Sandwich together, then cover with more cream then decorate the cake with an elegant drizzle of Banoffee toffee. Keep in an airtight container and eat within 2 days.

    I made this for my 16 year old sons birthday. I was a bit concerned about some of the negative comments but decided to give it a go. It was utterly delicious. Would be great also as a pudding.

    nice cake with creamy colour as my normal banana cake recipie is darker. My first attempt I tried to be clever and add caramel to the sponge. Tasted great but was an un-even cook, sinking in the in the middle. Second attempt it's pretty nice! I doubled the recipie and baked for 50 mins. I think as mentioned below you need some experience in baking and to know how to check if it's cooked throigh, spring test and knife test. I went for a carnation caramel icing ( caramel and icing sugar) it is a very nice cake. I'm glad it was uploaded as it makes a nice change

    I prefer the look of this recipe as it's simple and easy to follow. What this recipe isn't suggesting that another did. Instead on spending a fortune on the gourmet merchant sauce which is over a tenner you can substitute that with carnation caramel which can be bought at tesco for £1.60

    I almost didn't make this cake based on the negative comments below but had some bananas that needed using up so went for it anyway. I think it's a great recipe if you have often made victoria sponges in the past as the instructions are a bit bare but I thought the end product was great!

    Lovely, lovely cake, although I did only make half for a single layer! I also couldn't find any toffee sauce so made do with soft toffees from my baking cupboard, melted down with some double cream and poured over the top like a drizzle!'s picture

    I wished I knew that you could make toffee sauce by boiling condensed milk, since I couldn't find caramel sauce anyway. Had to resort to buying those ice cream toffee sauces instead. I hope it will still taste good.'s picture

    Yeah don't use those ice cream dessert sauces. Its just pure sugar with no flavour.

    Amazing recipe, easy and great results. I work as a chalet chef in the winter and this cake always gets demolished by my guests. A winner!!

    Don't waste your time with this one. I've made hundreds of cakes with rarely a problem but this was awful. I have much better banana loaf recipes that never fail.

    I'm mid-way through making this so can't comment on the taste, but this does indeed make quite a dense, moist cake - like any cake containing fruit. I used two slightly smaller (19cm) but deep tins and baked at 140 degrees for 35-40 minutes to give it a more even bake. Came out fine as far as I can tell. They didn't rise a massive amount so I'm glad I used smaller tins as they would have been pancake-like if I'd used the proper size! Having said that, when put together they will make a decent-sized sandwich cake so that doesn't bother me.

    I'm a traditionalist when it comes to cakes, just could not bring myself to mix all the ingredients from the start so this is what I did! I greased & floured a 12 hole muffin tin, creamed butter & sugar, added eggs beating with a hand whisk, folded in other ingredients with a tsp of nutmeg, divided mixture evenly in tins, levelled tops, baked for 20 mins, cooled completely, split the cakes in the middle, filled with thinly sliced bananas & a dollop of freshly whipped double cream that has had toffee/caramel sauce swirled through, placed each in a pretty cupcake wrapper, topped with more caramel cream, delicately drizzled with caramel/toffee sauce that has been mixed until runny, then finally sprinkled with dark chocolate strands!! Went down very very well at my daughter's school Macmillan coffee morning! None left! Forgot to say- I used carnation caramel sauce, I also used 2 cartons of double cream!
