Bananas Foster Cake
Even without the classic dessert’s trademark flambé, this spin-off made with yellow layer cake, rum-soaked bananas, and rum buttercream is a showstopper.
Why This Recipe Works
Bananas Foster is a delicious and impressive dessert that involves flambéing bananas in rum and serving them over ice cream. For a more party-friendly dessert, we fill layers of yellow cake with bananas cooked in a rum-laced caramel. The fluffy frosting gets a generous dose of rum as well, and the cake is topped with banana slices and more of the caramel sauce, enriched with butter for extra decadence.
