#3791 - Butterscotch Banana Cake

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 2/3 cups Nestle's butterscotch chips
1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
4 eggs
3/4 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup white sugar

In a microwave safe bowl add 1 1/3 cups of the butterscotch chips--microwave on 3/4 power in 30 second increments until melted and smooth. In a mixer add cake mix, eggs and mashed bananas--beat. Add canola oil, water and white sugar--beat until mixed, then beat for 2 minutes. Measure 2 cups of the batter and add it to the melted butterscotch chips--stir well. Pour the plain batter into a greased and floured tube cake pan. Pour the butterscotch batter evenly over the top, then use a greased butter knife to swirl the butterscotch batter through the plain batter. Bake at 375 degrees 35-45 minutes--test with a toothpick for doneness. Cool for 20 minutes, then loosen the edges and invert the cake on to a cake plate. Melt the remaining butterscotch chips in a microwave safe bowl (as before), then drizzle the melted butterscotch over the cake.
