How to make it

  • In a small heatproof bowl, sprinkle the gelatine over the cold water and leave for 5 minutes until spongy. Set the bowl over a small saucepan with simmering water and stir until the gelatine dissolves. Set aside to cool.
  • In the same time, beat the heavy cream and the powder sugar until peaks form. Add the cooled gelatine and beat until only combined. Fold in the mashed bananas until combined.
  • Split the chocolate sponge cake horizontally. Set the base of the cake in a 23cm spring form cake ring. Arrange sliced bananas over the top , pour over the cream filling and smooth the top with a spatula. Cover with the domed half of the sponge cake making sure to put it right in the center leaving ¼ inch in the edges. Arrange the rest of the sliced bananas all around the edge, inserting them in the empty spaces between the ring and the filling. Chill for 3-4 hours
  • Sift icing sugar over the top and use the melted chocolate to decorate the sliced bananas in the edges. Best served at the same day.
