Step by step method

  • Step 1

    Pour the sour cream into a deep bowl, add powdered sugar and beat thoroughly with a mixer, gradually increasing the speed.

  • Step 2

    We cut the gingerbread as in the photo: across into small plates with a thickness of not more than 2 cm.

  • Step 3

    Peel the banana and cut into slices.

  • Step 4

    We cover the form with cling film and put pieces of gingerbread on the bottom.

  • Step 5

    Lubricate them generously with sour cream.

  • Step 6

    Next, we make a layer of bananas, which we also grease with cream.

  • Step 7

    Alternate layers, pour plenty of cream on top, but leave some for the top. Cover with foil and put in the fridge for several hours.

  • Step 8

    After the time has elapsed, we take the cake out of the mold, remove the film and grease the remaining cream on top. We decorate at our discretion. As a simple decor, crumbs from gingerbread are suitable.

Tips & variations

  • Gingerbread cookies for the cake are suitable for any, those that you like best: chocolate, vanilla, stuffed, honey, ginger. You can also make your own gingerbread cookies for dessert.

  • Choose only fresh gingerbread. The fresher and softer they are, the more they will look like a biscuit after impregnation with cream.

  • For impregnation of gingerbread, sour cream or custard, butter with condensed milk are perfect.

  • Take sour cream for cream fat from 20%, and do not replace powdered sugar with sugar, otherwise the cream will be liquid. If sour cream is not fat enough, add a pack of sour cream thickener. Homemade sour cream is good.

  • To make the cake more interesting, use flavorings. For example, with bananas, the product will turn out to be sweeter. If you want a dessert option with a slight sourness, add kiwi. Canned pineapples will add juiciness to the product, and fried nuts will add satiety. It will be very tasty to add sour dried or dried berries: cherries, cranberries, lingonberries.

  • Decorate the finished cake however you like. For example, with pieces of fruit, sprinkle with gingerbread crumbs or coconut flakes, pour fudge, melted chocolate or grate chocolate.
