This light cake is like an upside-down cake, right-side up! The liquid at the bottom seeps into the cake, but not all the way, keeping the middle and top part of the cake light and fluffy while the bottom stays soft and gooey. That combination of sweet banana and maple, crunchy pecans, and moist cake is irresistible. And our Bourbon Whiskey Compound gives all the nuanced flavor of the liqueur without any alcohol. The first time Chef Barbara made this cake, we couldn't stop taking another little slice, and another, and another! Let that be a warning to you, we'd recommend taking this cake into work the next day, just to keep from eating it all! Makes one 8" cake.
