Delectable Sea Salted Caramel Bananas Foster Cake

When you strike gold, you want to let the world know...Our friend Alyssa at hermodernkitchen.com struck gold with this recipe, so we thought you should know.
Fall is upon us. The weather is getting cooler. And we're all craving sweet, baked goodness.
While many are turning to pumpkin everything--we don't blame you--some brilliant kitchen masters are reaching for other flavors like salted caramel, rum and bananas (aka Bananas Foster).

Alyssa inspires us to have more fun in the kitchen by adding a twist to the old Bananas Foster recipe. Secret weapon? You guessed it - Dollop Gourmet!

"The cherry on top of my Salted Caramel Bananas Foster Cake is Dollop Gourmet’s Sea Salted Caramel Frosting. Its caramelly sweetness is a delightful match to the brown sugar and bananas in the cake while Dollop’s hint of sea salt in the frosting brings the final flavor component to my Bananas Foster cake. I love the added touch of sea salt, as it brings a modern twist to the traditional Bananas Foster dessert, making it sweet, decadent and oh so, craveable!"

Health conscious Alyssa is the dearest. If she were to make her own frosting she says she would use the same ingredients that are in Dollop's spreads. That's how much she approves of the quality and nutritional value of our spreads over traditional store-bought frostings. Lucky for her, we saved her the trouble of shopping for al the ingredients and attempting to get the right consistency of frosting. It's not as easy as it looks!
