  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Banana Cream Filling:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed

Caramel Filling:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  • 1 ripe banana, sliced
  • Crushed nuts for topping (optional)
  • Additional caramel sauce for drizzling


  1. Prepare the Cake:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper and lightly grease the paper.
    • In a large bowl, beat the eggs and granulated sugar until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Add vanilla extract.
    • Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined.
    • Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.
    • Immediately turn the cake onto a clean kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar. Roll the cake up with the towel from the short end and let it cool completely.
  2. Make the Banana Cream Filling:
    • In a chilled bowl, beat the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the mashed bananas.
  3. Prepare the Caramel Filling:
    • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine brown sugar, heavy cream, butter, vanilla extract, and salt. Cook, stirring continuously until the mixture thickens, about 5-7 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.
  4. Assemble the Roll Cake:
    • Carefully unroll the cooled cake. Spread the banana cream filling evenly over the cake, leaving a small border around the edges. Drizzle some of the caramel filling over the banana cream.
    • Arrange the sliced bananas over the caramel. Carefully roll the cake back up, peeling off the parchment paper as you go.
    • Transfer the roll to a serving platter, seam side down. Drizzle with additional caramel sauce and sprinkle with crushed nuts if desired.
  5. Chill and Serve:
    • Chill the roll cake in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving. This helps the fillings set and makes the cake easier to slice.
