Caramel Banana Cake Roll: A fluffy sponge cake, a creamy delicious filling, and one of the best flavor combinations in the world–Banana + Caramel!
You guys, I decided to call the week leading up to my birthday cake week. I have never been much of a cake eater, so I decided to try making a bunch of different cakes, and see which one I love best. I went to FB and asked people for suggestions for their favorites, and my sister in law sent over this Caramel Banana Cake Roll from Lady Behind the Curtain.
Caramel Banana Cake Roll was absolutely delicious, and while very sweet, no one at my house complained. They LOVED it. And my brother in law loved it and asked for it for his birthday. And my sister loved it and asked for it for hers. So I have since made this cake dozens of times. So while this is not actually my recipe, I knew I had to share it with you.
Cake rolls are too much fun. I love that you basically get the frosting on the inside of the cake, and that it is usually better than frosting, usually it is a creamy, fluffy, delicious filling instead. I think one of the reasons I have never been a big cake eater is I don’t love frosting. With the exception of this peanut butter frosting, which is my absolute favorite thing ever, and I could eat with a spoon, and do! So give me filling over frosting, and I am a happy woman.
I have a pumpkin cake roll recipe I love, and a chocolate raspberry cake roll. But Caramel Banana Cake Roll will always remain my favorite cake roll simply because of the caramel and banana combination.
Tips for Making Cake Rolls:
- Bake the cake on parchment paper , and make sure it is fully baked. BUT…do not over bake. The cake is done when you lightly touch the surface with the tip of your finger and the cake springs back.
- Before rolling your cake roll, dust a Tea Towel well with confectioner’s sugar. You want to make sure your hot cake doesn’t stick to the cloth. If you were working with chocolate, I would suggest dusting with cocoa powder instead.
- Let it cool completely. You want it to cool completely before you try adding the filling, otherwise it will not hold together as well.
- Chill the cake. After filling it, give it time to chill. This will help everything stay together and make it easier to slice!
