For the cake:

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 3⁄4 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1⁄2 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 vanilla pods beans scraped out and pod discarded
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour

For the icing:

  • 1 cups powdered sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup butter softened
  • 1⁄2 cup cream cheese softened
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla pod beans scraped out and pod discarded
  • 2-4 tablespoons hot water


  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • Grease a 8 inch bundt pan
  • Place the condensed milk and bananas in a mid sized microwave safe bowl.
  • Place the bowl in the microwave on high for 45 seconds.
  • Mash the warm bananas well into the condensed milk. Add the vanilla bean. Mix to combine and set aside.
  • In a Separate large bowl, beat the butter sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the banana mixture until combined.
  • Beat in both eggs adding them one at a time until combined.
  • Mix in the salt and baking powder until combined
  • Mix in the flour until combined
  • Add the batter to the cake pan.
  • bake for 30-45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Leave to cool 10 minutes before turning out onto wire rack to cool completely.

For the Icing:

  • Make sure cream cheese and butter are at room temperature or icing will be lumpy. Blend the cream cheese and butter in a medium mixing bowl until smooth.
  • Add the powdered sugar 1⁄2 cup at a time, blending after each addition.
  • Add the vanilla and hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until the the icing is the the desired consistency and can be poured (I like mine quite thick).
  • Pour the icing over the cooled cake and decorate with sprinkles.
