The other day I was feeling like a custard cake so I pulled out my Home Sweet Home book by The Hummingbird Bakery and paged through it to see if there was something along those lines in it, not only did I find a custard cake but I found a banana, chocolate, and custard cake! Those are like three of the best flavours ever so I didn’t waste any time starting to put this magnificent beast together.
There are quite a few steps involved, you have to make the sponge, the custard and the ganache that goes on top so I wouldn’t say that it’s the quickest recipe to get through, but it’s totally worth all the effort because it’s super delicious. I changed a couple of things from the original recipe, but it still worked out great and I was really happy with the end result.
So if you fancy a soft fragrant banana sponge with a sweet custard center and a rich chocolate ganache frosting, then this is the cake for you. If you don’t like bananas, custard or chocolate then may I suggest you give it a major skip!
