Banana Trifle

READY IN: 36hrs 30mins




  • Slice the bananas and set them aside in a mixing bowl. Combine the butter and sugars in a measuring cup and heat in the microwave until soft.
  • Beat the mixture until smooth, then heat 1-2 minutes more on high until it bubbles. (Longer will caramelize it, which can also be good.).
  • Add the rum (watch for the alcohol to boil off) and mix thoroughly. Pour over the bananas and refrigerate until cool. (Overnight is good.).
  • Bake the cake according to package directions. Pan doesn't matter.
  • Slice the cake into 1" cubes. (This is easier to do if it's already slightly dry.).
  • Mix the lemon juice into the yogurt, stirring thoroughly to get it nice and creamy.
  • Cook the bananas in the microwave for a few minutes; they should be soft but not mushy. Pour off and reserve the cooking liquid.
  • Assembly time! Layer cake, bananas, and yogurt into a nice glass casserole or bowl. I usually do 2 full sets of layers, with a third layer of cake on top. Pour the reserved cooking liquid on top and top with the remaining yogurt.
  • If you've got an extra fresh banana lying around slice it and arrange it on top; sprinkle cinnamon or powdered nuts if you like. Serve chilled.
