This cake always looked very complicated and intimidating to me until I tried it. It is actually very easy make but can be a bit messy in the Kitchen. It is always a favorite because it is light and delicious. Another good thing about this cake is that it tastes better on the second day so, make it a day before and leave in the fridge overnight.

3 Eggs
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
3 tablespoon cooking oil
1 package vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup flour

2.5 cup milk
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 full tablespoon flour
1 full tablespoon corn starch
2 tablespoons butter
1 package vanilla
1 package powder whipped cream (see the picture below)

2 peeled bananas

For decorations: flaked coconut or ground walnut or hazelnuts

  • For the cake part: in a cake mixer, mix 3 eggs and 1 cup sugar together really well. It starts changing colour to white
  • Add in milk, cooking oil, baking powder, vanilla and flour last. Don't mix too much once the flour is added (just enough to mix through)
  • Spread cooking paper on the baking sheet
  • Cook at 350 until golden brown (approximately 20 to 25 minutes)

  • Once the cake is ready. Take it out of the oven and roll into a log with the cooking paper
  • Let it cool fully before attempting to use it to avoid breaking

  • Start getting the cream ready
  • In a pot, mix together: milk, egg,  sugar, flour, corn starch
  • Cook to pudding consistency on medium heat and stirring constantly
  • Add in butter. Once the butter melts, add in vanilla and remove from heat
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl or a blender
  • Blend to smooth out any lumps
  • Add in whipped cream and continue to mix for another 2 minutes
  • Once the cake is fully cooled, roll it out. It is important to separate it from the cooking paper before attempting to fill it with the cream
  • Save some of the cream for decorations. Spread most of the cream on the cake
  • Peel 2 bananas and break them in half
  • Place the bananas at one end of the cake over the cream and gently roll into a log paying attention keeping most of the cream inside the log. Some of the cream will spill out. Don't worry.
  • You can cut the ends if you would like a "perfect" log
  • Spread the remaining cream on the log
  • Decorate with coconut flakes or ground nuts like walnuts
  • Leave in the fridge overnight
