Bolo De Banana - Banana Cake



Brown sugar in large pot until sugar melts.
NOTE: Add just enough water to make a heavy syrup (I had to give an amt! ).
Pour syrup into Bundt pan and turn to spread over bottom and sides.
Slice bananas length-wise into four thin slices; sprinkle with cinnamon; lay banana slices up the sides of the bundt pan (outside and center).
NOTE: According to Lucia, don't sprinkle cinnamon on the "outside" of the bananas as it turns it dark.
CAKE: Mix together 3 egg yolks, butter, and sugar; beat til light.
Stir in milk, flour, & baking powder.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; fold into cake batter.
Bake at 375 until cake is done (toothpick comes out clean).
NOTE: Lucia said to bake for 20 minutes but it may take longer.
Let cool in pan; carefully invert onto cake plate/serving platter.
