Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. (350 if you are using white flour instead of wheat flour)
Grease a 9X5 inch loaf pan.
Spread the brown sugar on the bottom of the loaf pan. If using nuts, sprinkle them evenly over the sugar. Dot with the sliced butter.
Put it in the oven for about 8 minutes.
After melting in the oven, stir the mixture until dissolved and spread evenly on the bottom of the pan.
Place a single layer of the banana slices on top of the mixture along the entire bottom of the pan.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add all the remaining wet ingredients and beat just until combined. Do not over-beat.
Pour the batter over the sliced bananas in the pan.
In an oven preheated to 325 degrees F (350 degrees F if you are using white flour), bake for 1 hour (45 min. if you are using white flour) or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean but moist.
Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 20 minutes before inverting it on a cake platter.
To prepare the Caramel Glaze, place the butter, brown sugar and heavy cream in a small saucepan (you can also microwave the ingredients for a minute). Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let it sit for a minute. Pour the glaze evenly over the cake (on the upside down side with the bananas on top).
You could also add peanut butter or chocolate chips to the bread batter
