  • Category: dessert
  • Method: Oven




Banana Foster

  • 2 ½ cups sliced banana (approximately 3 bananas)
  • 4 Tbsp grass-fed butter
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 ounces rum, whiskey or bourbon

Optional topping

  • 12 cups coconut whipped cream or regular whipped cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8 inch round cake pan.
  2. Whisk the eggs, water, oil and vanilla extract in a large bowl.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour the batter in the cake pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. While the cake is baking prepare the banana foster filling.
  6. Heat a pan to medium heat and melt the butter. Add the coconut sugar and cinnamon and stir.
  7. Add the sliced bananas and lemon juice and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Turn off the heat and add the two ounces of liquor. Carefully use a lighter to light the bananas and let them “foster” until the flames are gone.
  9. Let the mixture cool and then put the banana foster in the middle layer of the cake or just drizzle on top with whipped cream, if desired.


  • If you decide to do layers for the cake it will need to be completely cooled before slicing it in to two layers.
