i just baked a banana cake (never had banana cake before, only banana bread) and I don't really know what to use for a filling. Any ideas or suggestions? TIA
i do a banana cake with cream cheese filling and caramelized bananas. its really yummy!!
Caramel or chocolate or peanut butter lol
I made banana cupcakes with a cream cheese buttercream and they were really good so I think a cream cheese filling would be good. I also did some with chocolate buttercream and they were good too but I definitely preferred the cream cheese.
traditionally here in NZ they are filled with fresh cream and slice bananas... perfect!
I vote for either caramel or peanutbutter
Thanks everyone! I'm think im going to try a caramel filling. I looked for a recipe here on CC and found one that looks very promising I have a thought...Do you think I could fold some caramel filling into Rich's Bettercreme and make it like a mousse?
I am not familiar with Rich's Bettercreme recipe, but if it is powder sugar (I assume it is), then it will depend on the liquid in the caramel filling.
I had the brilliant (insert sarcastic tone here...lol) idea to mix key lime pie filling with buttercream....the taste was INCREDILBE....the texture was almost runny though! I assume it was because of the liquid in the pie filling. (lime cupcakes in my photos) -- If someone has other ideas, feel free to correct me!
Might want to mix a small amount at first to see.....I'm all for experimental baking....that's how the good recipes are born
