Instructions

Bundt Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 10-12 cup bundt pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter until smooth. Add sugar and beat on med-high until pale and fluffy (2-3mins).
  • Reduce speed and add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition. Add vanilla and mashed bananas. Beat well to combine.
  • Alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour (3 additions of flour and 2 of buttermilk). Fully incorporating after each addition. Do not overmix.
  • Add some batter into your prepared pan and press it into the cracks of the bundt pan with a small spatula. Add remaining batter until pan is no more than 3/4 full. Smooth the top with a spatula and whack the pan against the counter to evenly distribute.
  • Bake for 60-70mins or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.
  • Place cake on wire rack to cool for 10mins. Whack the pan on the counter to loosen the cake and turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.

Glaze:

  • Whisk powdered sugar and maple syrup until smooth. Thick but pourable. Pour over cooled cake.

Candied Maple Bacon:

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and top with a wire rack.
  • Place maple syrup and sugar into a medium bowl and mix until combined. Add bacon slices and mix with your hands until coated.
  • Place strips of bacon onto wire rack and bake for 25-30mins or until browned and crisp. Remove from wire rack and place on parchment lined baking sheet to cool. Chop and sprinkle over top of glazed Bundt cake.
