How to make Sticky Toffee Banana Cake
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this cake. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Cake flour: See my recipe notes below on how to make your own cake flour!
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Ground cinnamon: Optional, but it’s wonderful paired with the banana flavour.
- Large eggs: You’ll need 3.
- Light brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Vegetable oil: We are using vegetable oil instead of butter for extra moisture.
- Greek-style yogurt: Makes for a moist cake.
- Bananas: You’ll need 6 – 7 large bananas. 3 mashed, and 3 – 4 sliced for topping the cake.
For the sticky toffee glaze, you’ll need:
- Unsalted butter
- Golden syrup: A good alternative is light corn syrup.
To make this cake, simply start by whisking together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs. Add the brown sugar, and whisk until combined. Add the vanilla, oil, yogurt, and mashed banana, whisk until combined, then gradually fold in the dry ingredients.
Pour the batter into a well-greased 13×9-inch cake pan. Place the banana slices evenly on top, and bake for about 25 – 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean, and the cake is pulling away from the sides of the pan.
Set the pan aside onto a wire rack whilst preparing the glaze.
For the sticky toffee glaze, add the butter and golden syrup into a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until the butter has melted and the mixture is boiling hot. If desired, you can do this step in a pan on the oven stove too (stirring constantly).
Pour the glaze over the top of the hot cake and tilt the pan back and forth to cover the entire surface in an even layer. You may need to spread some in places the cake has rose up.
Leave the cake to cool completely in the pan before slicing and serving.
The glaze will seep into the cake as its cooling down, making for an extra flavourful and moist cake!

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
