How to make it
- Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

- Pour batter into two 9 greased round cake pans and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 40 minutes or until done. Cool on racks and then brush with Simple Syrup.
- Simple Syrup:
- Combine sugar and water in a heavy small saucepan. Bring to a boil over moderate heat stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Stir in creme de banana.
- Strawberry Frosting:
- Whip cream in large chilled bowl on low speed until soft peaks form. Add Grand Marnier and sugar and beat on high speed until spreading consistency. Fold in mashed strawberries. Spread this mixture between layers and add sliced banana on top of bottom layer. Add remaining mixture on top and sides of cake.
