I recently came across this recipe and decided to make it for a baby shower this weekend. I did not use the pan in the recipe. I made a very high six inch cake and had some leftover batter which I made a 8 inch approx 2 in height. I have included the recipe for the frosting but I used dulche de leche SMBC. I also filled it with chocolate truffle filling. If anyone is interested in that recipe, let me know. This banana cake is very very moist.
Update: While trying to get the metric measurements for Katy, I found this http://dessert.food.com/recipe/best-ever-banana-cake-with-cream-che...
I guess this is where the original recipe is from and gives you the ability to use metric measurements.
Hi Goreti, I'm letting you know, I need the chocolate truffle filling recipe. I never did much baking before, so do not have any of these recipes you guys are so familiar with. Please?!
Just posted the recipe.
No, you didn't miss anything June. The cake is called banana pudding cake. I think it's because you mash the bananas but it doesn't actually take pudding. I think I will remove it from the title so no one is confused.
This sounds very similar to the Hummingbird Cake Betty and I were talking about. Can't wait to try it! Thanks.
thanks Goreti - might be time to get my American measuring cups out of the back of the cupboard!
Katy-This would be a very good reason to get them out. Really loved this one.
I've only used them once Goreti and the resulting cake was really not to my liking. So I don't know if it was the recipe or inaccurate measuring on my part as it's a completely alien concept to me! Made me a little nervous of trying them again as I hate failures and the waste of ingredients they involve!
You have a bunch of yankee friends, Katy, so if you have doubts, give us a shout! (Oh, I think I made a rhyme)
ok guys got it. Consider the gauntlet thrown! Won't be for a while as I have Jose's birthday cake to do next week. Then there's a whole mess of stuff going on here that may preclude baking. Plus Mick doesn't like bananas.... tricky!
