Bobby's Carmel Cake with a twist!

Paula,

I love your recipes, but I have to be honest I don't make them very often because of the behind and hip enlargement that seems to come with your cooking.  I really appreciate your cooking and now that I have taken the plunge and experienced it first hand I'm sure I will be making many more of your delicious recipes.  Could you please take it under advisement though that I would appreciate you keeping the calorie count to something around 1200 a piece of cake so that I may enjoy one forkful before having to walk away and only dream of the entire piece.  Summer is coming and I would like to buy a new bathing suit for the first time in 4 years.  I would also like to have the new swimsuit a size 6, that is very do able as that is what I am currently.  Therefore, I am requesting that you from now on make your recipes with little calories and no fat and all the flavor!

Thank you for taking my suggestions under advisement, I eagerly await your new low cal, no fat recipes!

Your loyal follower,

Holly   

 

Do you think that would work?  No, I didn't think so either.  That's why I didn't send it.  I was looking through my Google reader and came across a recipe from La Mia Cucina that looked divine!  So looked across the table at Tim the other night and said how do you feel about Banana Carmel Cake with Carmel Frosting?  His eyes lit up like I said he could buy a new computer and said "that sounds yummy!" so I decided that I would make it for him and the little one sleeping upstairs.  I had almost everything I needed already except for the cream and pecans so yesterday after swimming and Tim getting three more fillings done we headed out to the supermarket and got what I needed plus groceries for the week (I'm so pleased that grocery prices came down a little, I got everything I needed plus a few things I didn't for $100.00 bucks!  Wahoo!). 

Overall it wasn't hard to make at all although I did have to bake it for a little bit longer after I added three bananas that had been recommended by La Mia (I had forgotten that I reduced the recipe by 1/3 to only make a two layer cake).  Worked out great though.  I made the whole batch of caramel and of frosting because I was worried I would run out.  Didn't run out had plenty left over to offer to the hubby.

I made it last night for tonight after dinner.  It went over really well will the little man.  He was grabbing pieces of his plate even before I had finished taking pictures!  I would totally make this again!  It was so light and fluffy, where the caramel had oozed in it was so carmely and delicious.  The frosting worked perfectly!  I had to make the whole thing by hand because my hand held kitchen aid mixer has an owie (Riley broke one of the whippers).  Anyway's, here's some pictures for your enjoyment!
