I struggle with calling bread cake.

I know quick breads can be sweet, but I guess I’m just more of a cake girl,

and saying I can have cake for breakfast is….well…..


I couldn’t resist drizzling caramel all over the tops of this one,

really trust me it was worth the sticky fingers!

If you don’t like sticky fingers, don’t worry it’s super delicious all on it’s own.

I couldn’t wait to scoop up a piece with a spoon to get all the caramel too.

Yes, this is the cake you can eat with a spoon if you like….or your weird like me and can’t resist caramel.

  1. Diane, I’d never have thought of combining pumpkin with banana. Your cake looks amazing, so moist ‘n fluffy, and that caramel sauce is out of control (in the best way possible, of course). These are beautiful photos.
