Step 5:

Transfer the mixture to the prepared tray, smoothen it out and place in the center of the oven. Bake for about 40 minutes or until it is golden brown and sponge springs back when pressed. Once done baking, let it cool completely before frosting.

Step 6:

Make the frosting. Melt the butter and sugar in a pan over heat. Stir without boiling for about 2 minutes. Mix in the sour cream and bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat and add the powdered sugar and vanilla paste. Let it cool slightly until it thickens. Carefully frost the sponge. Cut the cake into fingers and garnish with banana slices and caramel sauce. Enjoy!
