I may be answering my own question, but here goes...

I have a client who wants to use a chocolate BC for her cake filling. She would also like to incorporate fresh bananas into the frosting. When you've done this in the past, do you just chop up bananas and add to a favorite choc BC recipe? Do you add anything else?

Also, do you find it better to finely chop up the bananas and mix into the BC or to spread out the choc BC and lay thinly sliced pieces of banana down on that?

Lastly, do you add citrus juice to the bananas to prevent browning?

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Of course it is not fresh banana but you might try banana baby food. We use it all the time in baking applications in the foods labs.
