This cake already had one strike against it – it’s a roulade, a sponge cake rolled around a filling.
In this case, it’s a chocolate sponge cake that’s easy to make and pretty easy to handle – no real issues with cracking. The filling is a take on chocolate ganache: chocolate folded with whipped cream and flavored with some mashed banana. The whole cake is wrapped around an entire banana. Oh, and there are some toasted walnuts in there too. There’s a lot going on.
I think this cake looks weird. It tastes okay, though. But given the choice, I’d much rather make a layer cake rather than a roulade.
