It’s that time of the month were all the ladies from the peanut butter bash get together and make some pretty awesome recipes. This month I went with a banana roll cake with whipped peanut butter ganache for the peanut butter and banana theme. I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of the banana and peanut butter combination. However, this is one of the best peanut butter and ‘nana desserts I’ve ever had. I think it’s the whipped peanut butter ganache that has me one over. I could eat that any day and every day.
I went heavy on the liquids and sugar to make sure that the cake stayed tender. If a roll cake is made too dry, it will break as you try to roll it. That’s not what I’m into. I wanted it to hold together perfectly and it did exactly what I wanted it to! Also, because the filling has to be refrigerated, it’s best to have more of a thin and moist cake.
The outside of the cake was slightly sticky. To keep the cake neatly packed, I took this banana roll cake with whipped peanut butter ganache and wrapped it in more peanut butter ganache. I feel like the banana cake was flavorful enough to compete with all the peanut butter ganache. I also like the texture of the two different ganaches.
