Ingredients

Cake

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
2 medium (1 cup) ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

Chocolate Cream

3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

Garnish

2 bananas
2 tablespoons chopped pecans

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine sugar, butter and 2 teaspoons vanilla in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Continue beating, adding eggs 1 at a time, until well mixed. Stir in 1 cup mashed bananas and sour cream by hand. Gently stir in flour and baking soda.

Pour batter into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely.

Beat whipping cream at high speed in small bowl, scraping bowl often, until soft peaks form. Continue beating, gradually adding powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla, until stiff peaks form. Add melted chocolate. Continue beating until well mixed. (DO NOT OVER BEAT.)

Place 1 cake layer on serving plate; spread with half of chocolate cream. Slice 1 banana; lay banana slices on top of chocolate cream. Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top of cake with remaining chocolate cream. Cover; refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.

Just before serving, slice remaining banana; arrange banana slices around outside edge of cake. Sprinkle pecans in center of cake. Store refrigerated.

TIP: This cake can also be baked in two 8-inch round cake pans. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

I’ve never really been a winter person (even though I was born and raised in the Midwest), but this year seemed especially harsh. With snow storm after snow storm, we didn’t get much of a break.
