How to make it

  • Cake:
  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • Beat eggs until light and foamy. Add flavorings. Add sugar gradually. Add flour mixture alternately with cream, beating after each addition until just smooth.
  • 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.

    Ok. This cake has the potential to be a big winner, just not with these directions. I'll start with the cake. The cake needs more extract and sugar. I used banana oil (had to cut the amount b/c banana oil is very concentrated)I would probably increase the sugar by 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Watch the time on this cake. Mine turned out slightly drier than I like it.

    The Simple Syrup: I brushed the simple syrup on all sides of the cake. I then sliced the banana and allowed it to marinate in the remaining syrup mixture before layering the very thin banana slices on the bottom layer.

    The Frosting: I frosted one layer of the cake with the above recipe and it was bland and lumpy from the mashed strawberries. I scraped off the frosting and returned it to the bowl. I added more powdered sugar to taste (I think I used about a cup of powdered sugar). I also subsituted Triple Sec for Grand Mariner (because I'm cheap). I then added some orange and almond extract to taste. I blended everything including the strawberries. The consistency of the frosting is thin. Next time, I would add a little butter or cream cheese and reduce the amount of whipped cream. This cake needs to be stored in the refrigerator.

    At first taste the flavors were a little too mild. They just needed to be cranked up a notch and I would be in love with this cake. I have it in the refrigerator and maybe by tomorrow the flavors would have had time to settle and mix.

    Another question: I'm going to add the simple syrup to the cake after baking and before the strawberry filling, correct? This step is missing from the directions for the assembly of the cake. I'm also just going to use 3 eggs, I think it should be ok, just because I have to start cooking it soon. Let me know for future reference how many eggs this recipe calls for.

    Hi Hopscotch, I'm not a big fan of chocolate covered strawberries, so I'll have to pass on that one. Well, maybe if it's white chocolate...I'll try it. I do need to know how many eggs this recipe calls for. I began to make it and noticed that eggs are missing from the ingredient list but is listed under step 3 in the directions. Thanks for your help.

    Love feed backs. As I try new recipes, I too like to leave a feedback, but often, when I get a hold of a recipe, I annihilate the original.

    Choclytcandy:

    I pinged just now, but the system is finicky and keeps crashing, so I don't know. But, why not add chocolate curls and perhaps chocolate covered strawberries - see my photo - he's suppose to be a Santa (laughs), but I have the website listed - see the webpage. It's festive and oh what JOY for all the little one's, includes the big and ole fellers.
