A Yummy Banana Cake with Penuche Frosting

What a wonderful looking cake, I know you all seem to love banana desserts so how about the banana cake with a delicious penuche frosting , which is a caramel frosting

Penuche (Italian: panucci) is a fudge-like candy made from brown sugar, butter, and milk, using no flavorings except for vanilla. Penuche often has a tannish color, and is lighter than regular fudge. It is formed by the caramelization of brown sugar; thus, its flavor is said to be reminiscent of caramel.

As you will see from the recipe the frosting is a fudge like caramel frosting and with that banana cake well it is a match made in heaven
