Serving suggestions for your banana cake
The banana cake is baked to perfection when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let the cake cool completely before serving. You can serve with a sauce of your liking. Chocolate will be preferred by kids, while you can whisk up a butterscotch sauce by caramelizing sugar and butter too. You will get a sweet and salty butterscotch sauce which works wonders with the banana cake. You can use whipped cream, cream cheese or any icing of your choice. Decorate as per your taste; you can use chopped nuts, sliver balls, chocolate chips or even cherries.
Serve to the delighted audience and bask in the glory of admiration and adulation.
