Caramel Banana Cake Roll
Make this Caramel Banana Cake Roll recipe and enjoy the great combination of caramel and banana in a rolled cake base. This Caramel Banana Cake Roll recipe recommends reduced fat ingredients throughout the cake and topping. That includes reduced fat cream cheese, a reduced fat (and commercial) whipped topping, as well as reduced fat caramel. This method is clearly one that you could use; however, consider not doing that or following that method. There is growing research that when people eat no fat and low fat foods two possible outcomes occur. Neither of the outcomes is what you might hope for, namely, decreased weight or perhaps just maintaining weight. In fact, just the opposite seems to occur.
This seems to happen because people who are eating reduced fat or even no fat foods can possibly suffer a psychological reaction to the lower fat in the treat, snack or dessert (or even main dinner dish). The psychological reaction is to do one of two possible things. First, you can eat way too much of the lower fat food (say, three or four pieces of the sweet treat) because you think that it is lower in fat (which it might be, but calories still count!). Second, you can eat too much because you are actually craving something rich and fattening, and know that this dish that you are eating is not full of fat. So you react against the lack of fat by eating even more than you should.
In this recipe, you could likely replace all of the commercial and reduced fat foods with real foods that contain some fat, and then possibly feel more satisfied with a much smaller amount of this sweet treat. Real foods always taste much better than something commercially produced or made, especially when it comes to dairy (cream cheese and whipped cream). This is a lovely recipe, otherwise, made entirely from scratch, and including a small amount of banana in the cake itself. That flavor will infuse the cake, and you can emphasize the banana by adding fresh cut banana pieces on each slice, or even just smothering the completed cake with chopped bananas.
Bananas are a great food to cook with. They are nutritious as well as delicious, and they taste great in fresh desserts and other sweet dishes. They add plenty of nutrition such as phosphorous, as well as other minerals and vitamins. They even contain some protein and fiber. So they make a great contribution to whatever dish you use them in that goes beyond just great taste. And bananas taste wonderfully against dairy such as the cream cheese and whipped cream in this recipe. Enjoy this recipe with your family soon.
