Banana Bundt Cake with Pecan, Banana, Caramel Sauce

Meg2_01_01

I talk a lot about about my blogger friends.  An amazing group of women who I have a complete utter blast with.  Well one of them, Meg from Sweet Twist of Blogging is having a baby.  Like really, really soon.  And what better way to celebrate as food blogger is to throw her a surprise virtual baby shower.  At least I hope its a surprise.  I’m not good with planning surprises but since someone else planned this I’m sure it will work out fine.  I hope 🙂 I haven’t been to many baby showers in my life time and as someone without children (minus Step kids) or desire to have any of my own I am kind of okay with that.

Babies and pregnancy are not things I can relate well to and quite honestly being in a room full of people talking about those things leaves me a bit uncomfortable.  But I know food and that is why I am 100% on board for this kind of shower. Just the sharing of food and recipes.  Makes me almost want to have……ahhh nope! Who am I kidding.

Banana Bundt (7 of 9)

So I made this banana cake.  In mini bundt pans.  And despite the pan being small this is definitely a dessert to share.  With friends.  Great friends Like I have here!
