Beat the eggs. Put the butter in a bowl and beat with whisk until the butter is still soft as mayonnaise. Add sugar to the soft butter. Add the beaten eggs bit by bit to the butter-sugar mixture. Beat well each time.
Add the caramel-banana mixture to the butter mixture. Then add flour and baking powder. Mix well until no dry flour see more.
Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake in a preheated oven (160 degrees C) in 45 minutes.
