Hello everybody,
I have to make a Banana cake for 50 people and I was wondering if anybody knows or have tried a Banana WASC?

Please help....I don't know what to do?!

I would think if you used a banana flavored cake mix and used banana extract that it would taste fine. I would use vanilla and banana flavorings, not the almond extract. I would use the banana extract carefully because a little can go a long ways. Good luck.

I've never made the WASC cake, but I did make a banana flavored cake by just adding banana flavoring (McCormick in the red box at Walmart) to a white cake mix. So unless a scratch recipe is really different, wouldn't it be just a substitution of flavoring?

Are you taste-testing it first?

I ask because I tried a couple different versions of banana cake when I was in developing a bananas foster cupcake, and I always found that the banana cake tasted too much like a muffin, and didn't go well with any kind of frosting/filling.

The Cake Mix Doctor has a incredible banana cake recipe. It uses real bananas, and yellow cake mix. It doesnt have that funky artifical banana flavor to it and is very moist. I can post it if it is allowed here...

I have doubled that recipe many times...it normally does 2-9 inch pans. Are you doing a two tiered cake? You can do a 8 inch top tier and a 11 or 12 inch bottom tier. Top tier is one recipe and bottom tier is double recipe.

Sure!

Banana Cake

1 package of yellow cake mix
1/2 cup of packed light brown sugar
2 med size ripe bananas peeled and mashed (about 1 cup)
1 cup of water
1/2 cup oil (veg, canola, corn, safflower)
3 large eggs (I use 4 here in NC)
1 teas ground cinnamon
2 teas of creme de banana liquer (optional)

Lightly grease 2 9 inch rounds. (She has you preheat the oven to 350, but I bake these at 325...)
Place the cake mix, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Add the mashed bananas, water, oil, eggs and creme de banana if desired. Blend low speed 1 minute. Scrap sides and blend again for 2 minutes on medium. THe batter will look well blended and bananas pureed.

Divide into pans and bake until they are lightly brown-30-32 minutes at the 350. Little longer at 325.

loriemoms, thanks for the recipe too!

i actually made a query in another post because a little boy (about 6 years old) asked for a banana cake. i wasn't sure if he wanted a typical scratch cake made with real bananas, or a WASC cake flavoured with banana syrup.

is banana liqueur the same thing as banana syrup?

I doubt it. Banana liqeur has a rich flavor. I dont know if syrup does..and it doesnt taste as fake..

thanks for responding!

does liqueur have a lot of alcohol in it? is it suitable for children?

One of the WASC versions on CC calls for three ripe mashed bananas in it. I haven't tried it but it sounds great.

What about the water content? The liquid to remain same...or it'll change with 3 mashed bananas in it!?

I had tried the mashed bananas with WASC...it didn't rise right and the middle was very soft. I also tried it with banana pudding, and it tasted too artificial for me. I just don't care for fake food flavors, I guess.
