    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients


    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
    Powdered sugar
    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.
