The other day I found an amazing looking recipe for Texas Sheet Cake that I quickly pinned and was seriously contemplating making, but decided against it for the time being. As much as I LOVE chocolate, I realize that I need to try more non-chocolate dessert gems, like caramel.
Caramel…yummy… just the name “caramel” sounds smooth and sweet. Caramel seems to make everything taste better…well, unless of course it gives you a massive stomach ache for a couple days, then not so much. My kids and I have dairy allergies and intolerances, so traditional caramel is off of our “must have” list, unless I whip up some of my own.
This Banana Sheet Cake is excellent (it’s actually a half sheet cake), but it is the perfect vehicle for showcasing a nice Caramel Sauce. This Carmel Sauce is not only allergy-friendly, but it is super easy to make, is paleo, and can easily be made vegan. Whip up some of your own and add it to this cake or on top of your favorite ice cream. I have even used a similar version in homemade caramel corn!
