List of Ingredients
FROSTED BANANA LOG
1 pkt (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
1 pkt (3-oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Sugar
1 x Egg
3 tbl Milk
1/2 cup All-purpose flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking soda
4 x Egg yolks
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/3 cup Sugar
1 lrg Banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup per banana)
1/2 cup Finely chopped walnuts or pecans
4 x Egg whites
1/2 cup Sugar
cream cheese frosting
Chocolate-flavored syrup (optional)
Lightly grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Line bottom with waxed paper; grease paper. Set aside
FOR FILLING: In a small bowl combine cream cheese and sugar; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add whole egg and milk; beat until combined. Spread in the prepared pan; set aside.
FOR CAKE: In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.
In a small mixer bowl beat egg yolks and vanilla on medium speed about 5 minutes or until thick and lemon colored. Gradually add the 1/3 cup sugar, beating until sugar is dissolved. Stir in banana and nuts.
Thoroughly wash the beaters. In a large mixing bowl beat the egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add the 1/2 cup sugar, beating on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).
Fold yolk mixture into egg whites. Sprinkle the flour mixture evenly over egg mixture; fold in just until blended.
Carefully spread the batter evenly over the filling in the pan. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.
Immediately loosen the cake from sides of pan and turn out onto a towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Carefully peel off paper. Starting with narrow end, roll up cake using towel as a guide. (Do not roll towel into cake.) Cool completely on a wire rack.
