    Your recipe doesn't mention caramel mixture gets poured into pan, then banana slices are placed on top of caramel before banana cake mixture is added. That step is missing from instructions. I'm glad I watched the video first to understand this step. Thanks for good demo.

    Sorry, I just read your recipe again - and yes it does mention caramel and sliced bananas. My error. Apologies.
