What’s been cookin’? The moistest gluten-free banana cake, filled with custard buttercream.
Each layer uses 1 1/4 cups bananas, pecans and buttermilk. The recipe comes from my Grandma Mickey’s old cookbook, which I converted into a gluten-free recipe. As you can see, I used a gluten-free buttercream, which you can find in my recipes section, to create a filling barrier. My, made from scratch, custard buttercream, using eggs for our own organic, free range chickens, gives a creamy, savory flavor to a very sweet cake.
The white buttercream border was piped using a 1M tip reverse scroll motion. Using an extra stiff buttercream, the roses and leaves show more definition and dry quickly. The custard soaked gluten-free banana cake gives the dessert extra moisture and flavor.
