Bananas Foster Sheet Cake

Cake:

1 1/2 cups butter, room temperature

3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 1/4 cups sugar

6 eggs, room temperature

3 cups ripe mashed bananas

3/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon rum or rum extract

1 cup chopped toasted pecans or walnuts

Cake:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour a 9×13 inch baking dish; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer beat until fluffy the butter and sugar.

In a bowl whisk together the remaining dry ingredients except the nuts; set aside.

Add the eggs one at a time and combine well between each addition to the cream butter /sugar mixture. In a bowl combine the mashed bananas, sour cream and rum/rum extract; set aside. Alternately add the dry ingredients and the banana mixture to the egg mixture. Evenly spread batter into prepared dish. Bake for about 1 hour or until done. It will be done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven. Place on rack. Using a fork poke holes all over the top of the cake.

Glaze:

1 -14oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 -8oz. butterscotch topping

Combine all the glaze ingredients; mix well until combined.

While cake is still warm, gradually spread the glaze over the top of the warm cake. Give time for the glaze to be absorbed as you continue to add the glaze. Once all the glaze has been added to top of cake, allow to completely cool

Frosting:

1- 8oz. package cream cheese, room temperature

4 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon rum or rum extract

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 -8oz. jar butterscotch topping

A few chopped nuts for garnish- optional

Frosting:

Combine the cinnamon, salt, powdered sugar, extracts and cream cheese. Beat until smooth. Add the heavy cream and beat until thickened. Spread on cooled cake.

Dollop the butterscotch topping and drizzle over the top of the frosted cake. Using a toothpick or sharp knife swirl around through the topping and frosting to create a marbled effect. Sprinkle top with nuts if desired. Store in refrigerator

This would also be good served with a sauce of sauteed bananas, brown sugar, butter and rum on the side.

  1. too funny as I just got through a banana series on facebook and also today’s blog post (saw you at fb–thanks 🙂 ). This cake looks amazing. Could use the rum roasted bananas suggested by Traveling Truffle (on my fb, then again foodforfun) for even more crazy-good, but maybe wouldn’t make a difference as already so much flavor in what you’ve done. Anything bananas foster is fine by me!

  2. wow – definitely one of those sites that help when you’re between meals! What gorgeous looking food. Thank you so much for dropping by and liking my roast quince couscous – really sorry I didn’t thank you before. Your like ended up in my archives before I’d realised. Apologies. I’ll keep an eye out for more of your gorgeous recipes!
    Take care, and happy eating!
