2 fresh bananas, sliced

2 teaspoons (or 1 stick) instant espresso granulate

4 tablespoons water


30 grams (¼ cup) cocoa powder

2. Crush 4 ripe bananas.

3. Mix butter, sugar, eggs, crushed bananas, and vanilla extract until combined well.

5. Pour batter into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper.

6. Bake for 60 minutes until the top is golden brown and firm. Let cool.

7. Add sugar to whipping cream and beat to stiff peaks.

8. Slice the banana bread into even ½-inch slices and line a baking pan with half of the slices.

9. Dissolve instant espresso in cold water, add amaretto if desired, then apply half of it on the bread slices with a brush.

10. Using a third of the sweet whipped cream, cover the banana bread with a thin layer of cream until the bread is completely covered.

11. Add a layer of banana slices covering the whole baking pan and top it off with another third of the cream.

12. Top with the rest of the banana bread slices, coffee mixture, and sweetened whipped cream.

13. Dust cocoa powder on top with a small sieve until it is completely covered.
