  2. Heat butter over high heat until foamy. Cool in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add bananas, sugar and eggs. Whisk to combine.
  4. Sift cake flour and baking powder together and fold through.
  5. Bake in an ovenproof dish for 20-25 minutes, or until well browned.
  6. For the sauce, heat butter in a large saucepan over high heat until foamy.
  7. Add sugar and cream and bring to the boil.
