How to Make Jowar Banana Cake with Salted Caramel Sauce

3.Peel and mash the banana in a mixing bowl. Add melted butter to it and whisk well.

5.In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until light and fluffy. Add to the banana mixture and mix well.

9.For the Salted Caramel Sauce
10.In a mixing bowl, whip the cream and butter until light and keep it aside.
11.Place the sugar in a large pan over low heat and allow it to melt. You can shake the pan slightly from time to time to evenly melt the sugar. After 4-5 minutes, the sugar will start acquiring a brown colour. Keep a strict watch because it happens rather rapidly.

13.Stirring continuously, let the mixture thicken to a sauce-like consistency. Add in the salt and stir again to mix well. Remove from the flame and let it cool.
15.Slice the banana cake and serve warm topped with salted caramel sauce.
