Back in the day I was known for
"Polly's Banana Cake."
There was a time when I actually sold these cakes.
Now I make them for fun!
This morning I made one for my nephew who just returned
home from a 2 year mission for our church.
My children often ask me how to make one of these cakes,
so I thought I would post it here.
Then they would always have access to it.
First you start with a cake.
I'm not really into the made from scratch cakes.
My favorite is a box mix from Duncan Heinz.
You need whipping cream. It needs to be the heavy kind.
I like the brand that Costco carries as well as
Wal-Mart brand as long as it says heavy.
I use powdered sugar instead of granulated,
it makes the cream more stiff.
Mix the cream in a mixer until it is really stiff.
Slice your cake down the middle
spread a layer of cream on the bottom layer and
top with fresh sliced bananas.
Add another layer of cream on top of the bananas
and then slide the top back on top.
Frost the cake with more cream and decorate to your hearts desire.
Banana cakes are best eaten the day you make them.
Store in the refrigerator and enjoy!
I think we should all eat more cake.
