Banoffee pie is a thing that people seem to either love or hate, and we are definitely of the former opinion. Bananas, toffee, and cream … yum. What’s not to like about that combo?
We’re also of the opinion that poke cakes are the perfect vehicle for fun flavor combinations and a banoffee version seemed like it would work perfectly. And it did. We love this cake! As easy to make as it is to eat!
Banoffee Poke Cake
Prep Time: 0 hours 20 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 45 mins
- Nonstick cooking spray, for pan
- 1 box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
- 1 c. dulce de leche, slightly warmed (plus more for drizzling)
- 2 c. cold heavy cream
- 1/4 c. powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 banana, sliced
Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9″-x-13” pan with cooking spray. Prepare cake mix according to package instructions.
Pour batter into greased pan and bake until the cake is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 26 minutes.
Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke holes across entire cake surface. Pour dulce de leche on top to fill the holes.
Make whipped cream: In a large bowl, combine heavy cream, powdered sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Using a hand mixer or a large whisk, beat mixture until soft peaks form. Spread whipped cream on top of the cake.
Garnish the frosted cake with banana slices, then drizzle more dulce de leche on top. Slice into squares.
