Banana (Tiramisu) Cake

I think everyone knows that my mom is THE CAKE queen in our household, or maybe I should say the greater Chicago area. When I made this cake, I did not expect her to go all crazy over it, but then again they do say that the apple (or int this case, banana)  doesn't fall far from the tree.

I've been dying to make a cake with the famous chocolate candy called Bananice, my absolute favorite. My grandfather would always buy this for me when I was a little kid. One time I threw a tantrum in the supermarket, and he was too embarrassed to put the candy back, so we ended up with a month's supply. May I say that this never happened with my grandmother, who was very firm and did not let a 4-year old boss her around. 

Anyways, I wanted to make something with the Bananice, but I noticed we had way too many actual bananas in the kitchen, so I decided to go that route instead. I looked around the kitchen to see what other ingredients I had laying around and came up with this:

  • 3 Bananas 
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Pint Heavy Cream (500ml)
  • 1 Cup Milk (or Instant Coffee)
  • 1 Pack Lady Fingers 


1) Mix heavy Cream and bananas together and keep adding sugar.  Put bowl aside.
2) Soak lady fingers in milk or coffee and place into a 8" baking pan with detachable bottom. (don't let them get too soggy)
3) Spread the heavy cream/banana mixture evenly over the lady fingers. Repeat until baking pan is filled all the way to the top.
4) Freeze for 3-4 hours
5) Sprinkle cocoa powder or zest chocolate over the cake and serve.
