Decorating Tips:

  • The roll can be dusted with cocoa powder in addition to coconut flakes for an extra chocolatey touch.
  • Garnish with banana slices or a few whole bananas on the side for a decorative and appetizing display.
  • Edible flowers or mint leaves can add color and an element of freshness to the presentation.
  • Drizzle with melted chocolate or caramel for an even more luxurious finish.

Ingredients: Sponge:

  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 120g of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder or baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Filling:

  • 0.5 liters of milk
  • 120g of sugar
  • 2 pudding mixes (vanilla or white chocolate flavor)
  • 4 squares of white chocolate
  • 150 g butter, room temperature
  • 2 bananas
  • Lemon juice
  • Coconut flakes for coating

Instructions:

  1. Preparing the sponge: Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until frothy. Add the vanilla extract. Sift the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, baking powder/soda) and gently incorporate. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff and gently incorporate them into the batter. Spread the mixture on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake at 180°C (356°F) for 20 minutes. Let cool briefly, peel off the paper, then roll up the sponge with the paper inside to cool completely.
  2. Preparing the filling: Heat most of the milk with the sugar. Mix a little milk with the pudding powders and add it to the heated milk. Cook until thickened. Off the heat, stir in the white chocolate until melted. Let the pudding cool, then stir in the softened butter to create a creamy cream.
  3. Assembly: Unroll the biscuit, spread the cream (reserve 2 tablespoons for the exterior coating) and place the bananas and lemon juice at one end. Roll up tightly, then top with reserved cream and sprinkle generously with coconut flakes.
  4. Cool and serve: Refrigerate the roll for at least a few hours to harden. Slice and serve chilled.

Enjoy this delicious chocolate-banana bun, a perfect combination of flavors and textures that is sure to impress your guests and satisfy your sweet tooth!
