Bananas Foster Cake | Eggless Baking

Bananas Foster makes for the most addictive dessert! Whenever I have some bananas sitting on the counter that are about to get over ripe, I am tempted to make Bananas Foster for dessert. So a couple of weeks back when just about 6 bananas were about to go over the edge, I decided to improvise. If you like Bananas Foster, what can be better than a batch of Bananas Foster jam? I made the jam by improvising on the Bananas Foster recipe.
It turned out delicious and we really enjoyed the jam. Then last weekend we got really busy and I got no time to do my regular weekend baking. In fact things were so hectic that I was not even able do the groceries! On Sunday evening I decided to try and bake a cake for the week using the banana jam. I was completely unsure of how it would turn out, but I knew I had had great results in the past when baking with sour cream, so decided to give it a try. The results are here for me to share and you to enjoy:)

Ingredients for Bananas Foster:
2 cups over ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp butter, unsalted
2 tbsp lemon juice

Ingredients for Cake:
11/2 cup bananas foster jam
1/3 cup sour cream
4 tbsp olive oil
11/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda


  1. To make the jam, combine the mashed bananas and lemon juice in a large pan.
  2. Next stir in the sugars, butter, and cinnamon.
  3. Place the pan over low heat, stirring continuously until the sugars have melted completely.
  4. Increase heat, bring to a full rolling boil. Stir continuously until the jam thickens to a spreading consistency.
  5. Turn off heat. Cool completely, pour into a jar, and refrigerate. This jam will stay well in the refrigerator for up to a month. It taste great on hot toast. Warm it up as needed to enjoy over vanilla ice cream.
  6. To make the Bananas Foster cake: combine the all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. 
  7. To this mix, add the sour cream, olive oil, and the bananas foster jam.
  8. Stir well to combine all ingredients into a thick batter.
  9. Pour this batter into a prepared baking pan and bake in a preheated oven at 350 F for 35-40 minutes.
  10. Remove from the oven. Cool in the pan. Remove, slice and enjoy.
