Layered cake banana
What is layered cake banana?
This sweet treat is only served on special occasions, because it is quite laborious to make it yourself; layer by layer the cake must be baked. Luckily you can buy the fresh spekkoek now so you don’t have the hassle. The Dutch name ‘spekkoek’ (baconcake)is caused by the resemblance with streaky bacon, called speck in Indonesia, where this treat originates.
In this banana variety, the dark, rich, spicy layers alternate with lighter layers of bananacake.
