This banana and walnut cake recipe is the ultimate winter indulgent dessert topped with oozing Muldoon salted butterscotch sauce. This sauce is lovely over some homemade ice cream and the best thing about it is this sauce will last for weeks in the fridge – if it isn’t all eaten of course.

Ingredients:

Cake
2 ripe bananas
170g castor sugar
170g self-raising flour
170g butter
3 medium eggs
100ml Muldoon whiskey
80g chopped walnut pieces

Butterscotch Sauce
50ml Muldoon whiskey
50g butter
50g golden syrup
50g brown sugar
Squeeze of lemon juice
75ml cream
10g sea salt

Method:

1.Preheat oven to 160c.
2. In a large bowl cream the sugar and butter together, drop eggs in one at a time and mash the bananas together with 50ml of Muldoon.
3. Add to the bananas to the mix and add the sieved flour.
4. Pour into a lined loaf tin topping with the chopped walnuts and bake for approximately 1 hour.
5. Allow to cool and pour over Muldoon to keep the cake moist.
6. For the sauce, put the butter, golden syrup and brown sugar in a saucepan. Allow it to caramelize, add lemon juice and cream – please be careful as the cream will boil up straight away and the caramel might spit a little.
7.Now add Muldoon with the salt. The salt will break down in the whiskey so you will have the salt flavour with the sweetness of the Muldoon whiskey – a classic combination.
