Ingredients

  • 3 bananas
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup butter

A banana bread meets Swiss roll meets cheesecake - the start of the most delicious joke ever.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F.
  2. Mash the bananas and whisk in the sugars, eggs and butter until light and fluffy.
  3. Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Fold everything together and pour onto a lined rectangular tray. Bake for around 15 minutes - don't bake too long or the cake will crack when rolled.
  5. When it's out of the oven cover with a lightly oiled sheet of baking paper and flip the tray to release the cake, then roll it up into a spiral with the paper inside. Allow to cool for an hour or so.
  6. Whisk together the cream cheese, butter and icing sugar.
  7. Unroll the cake and remove the greaseproof paper, then spread with the cream cheese mixture and roll it up again. Chill for an hour or so.
  8. Pour over the remaining cream cheese mix and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
