Today I made Banana Cake with Grand Marnier Glaze!
3C flour, 1 1/2 C sugar, 3t baking powder, 1t salt, 4T butter, melted, 5 eggs, separated, 7 ripe, medium bananas, mashed, 1/4C skim milk
Glaze: 6T cornstarch, 1/2C water, 2/3C sugar, 1/2C Grand Marnier
Preheat oven to 350F.
Sift dry ingredients. In separate bowl, whisk yolks with 1 1/4 C sugar.
Alternately stir in dry ingredients, milk and melted butter, beginning and ending with dry.
Stir in bananas until almost blended.
In separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
Beat in 1/4C sugar until meringue is stiff but not dry.
Carefully fold banana mixture into whites.
Turn into 2 greased 9″ round pans.
Bake 40 minutes or until lightly browned and toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan on separate plates.
Glaze: Constantly stir cornstarch, water and sugar over medium heat until thickened into a paste, about 10 minutes. Turn off heat.
Quickly add Grand Marnier, stirring vigorously until well blended.
Pour half of glaze on top of one cake.
Put second cake on top of first. Pour on remaining glaze. Slice cake. Serve warm.
