It looks beautiful—it’s got great height!! Hey, I meant to ask—did you use all butter (I did) or the butter/oil combo update? Also, did you use the regular recipe amount of sour cream or the max offered in the footnote (I used max)?
Thanks! I used all butter and the maximum amount of extra sour cream, as you mentioned you did and you liked it that way. I know how much you like this cake so I just had to try it. My husband is on the way home so I expect an opinion very soon. One thing though, he is not a fan of chocolate, especially if it isn’t milk chocolate; but, I think he will be able to judge the cake apart from the frosting
Oooh, what a beautiful slice! It’s perfect!!!! I’m glad your hub even liked the ganache with it. Whenever I have leftover sour cream from a cale, I make sour cream ganache (even if only 1/2 cup) and throw it in the freezer. I’m glad you liked it, too, with all butter and max sour cream—it’s so yummy! I hope you do try the other frosting sometime, too—if you do, please let me know how you like it!! Congrats on such a perfect cake!!
I invented my own frosting: 1 lb. butter, 1 lb. cream cheese, 2/3 c. clover honey, 1/4 c. sour cream, 1 T. vanilla. It is magnificent!!! And, it stays soft, even in the fridge. It is super-light and whippy dip. And the best part: It goes with the cake perfectly!!!
I made Anne’s frosting today. It is AMAZING!!! OMG!!! So Delicious!!
I had 2 very ripe bananas and baked the Rose Cordon Banana Cake, again using the butter and max sour cream. I frosted it with Anne’s frosting and covered it with sliced almonds.
YAY! I’m so glad you enjoy it! Your cake is so beautiful. The almonds are so gorgeous on it! Congratulations on another beautiful Cordon Rose Banana. That CRB is so amazing you could literally make it over and over with different wonderful frostings—and even no frosting at all!!
While we’re talking about the Cordon Rose banana cake, has anyone ever tried using frozen bananas? If so, do you have to do any adjustments because of the additional liquid? I’ve read about people using frozen bananas in cakes, so I started freezing them…now I’ve got about a dozen, lol, and need to do something with them as they are hogging up all the freezer space!
