  • 4 medium overripe bananas peel on
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp banana bean paste
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • splash of rum or bourbon
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 pound cake cut into cubes
  • 1 medium banana sliced
  • 1/2 cup candied peanuts chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place overripe bananas on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool 15 minutes. Peel bananas, reserving both flesh and peels separately.

  2. Combine roasted banana peels and cream in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium. Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Pour cream mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into the bowl of an electric stand mixer; discard peels. Set mixing bowl in a larger bowl filled with ice water. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until cream is cold.

  3. Combine brown sugar and water in a large skillet over medium-high; bring to a simmer, and stir in butter. Add roasted banana flesh and rum; cook, stirring often, to cook off the alcohol, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon juice to taste. Transfer banana mixture to a blender, and blend until smooth. Cool completely.

  4. Layer cake cubes, banana puree, sliced banana, whipped cream, and candied peanuts in individual trifle glasses.
