  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray Silicone Floral Cupcake Pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In Small Batter Bowl, microwave butter on HIGH 1 1/2-2 minutes or until melted, stirring after each 30-second interval; set aside to cool slightly. Finely chop pecans using Food Chopper. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine pecans, flour, baking powder and salt; mix well and set aside. Add brown sugar, eggs and vanilla to butter; whisk until smooth using Stainless Whisk.

Bake 18-22 minutes or until edges of cakes are golden brown. Remove from oven; cool 5 minutes in pan. Carefully invert cakes onto Stackable Cooling Rack.
  4. If desired, arrange five banana slices in a circle in center of each serving plate. Drizzle plate with Homemade Caramel Sauce. Top with one cake. Decorate with Caramel Drizzle Designs, if desired. Serve warm.
