Bananas Foster Trifle
Rum-spiked brown sugar walnut cake is layered with vanilla custard, meringue, and sticky bananas foster to make this decadent treat.
- This cake keeps well and can be made up to 3 days in advance. Wrap on plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
- I like to eat the trimmings of the cake with peanut butter. They're also wonderful buttered and griddled.
- When separating the eggs, reserve 4 egg whites for the meringue.
- Custard can be made 1 day in advance. Press plastic wrap directly on custard to prevent a skin from forming and refrigerate. Whisk to loosen prior to using.
