Creamy Cold Banana Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 basic pandispan / sponge cake base (round)

For the syrup:

  • 2 tablespoons rum or banana liqueur
  • 6 tablespoons banana juice or water

For the filling:

  • 250 grams (1 cup) heavy cream
  • 15 grams confectioners’ sugar
  • 100 grams condensed milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • A few drops yellow food color (optional)

To decorate:

  • Banana slices (optional)
  • Chocolate, melted (optional)

 

Preparation:

  • Prepare the syrup, mixing the juice/water and rum/banana liqueur. Place the sponge cake base on a round serving plate and wet it with the syrup. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, blend or mash the bananas; set aside.
  • Next, using an electric mixer, whisk the sugar and heavy cream until creamy. Then, pour the condensed milk, vanilla extract, a few drops of yellow food color (if using), and put the egg yolk. Beat until well incorporated. Add the mashed bananas and combine.
  • Spread the batter on the base of the cake and place in the freezer for 6 hours – ideally overnight.
  • Before serving, decorate with banana slices and drizzle melted chocolate (if desired).

Note: This cake is served straight from the freezer – it won’t be ice-cold, but creamy and semi-cold.

Buon Appetito!
