This Banana Roll is a fun, delicious dessert that looks fancy but is actually so easy to make! A cream cheese banana filling is rolled up in a soft, moist banana infused cake. A great dessert for any occasion!
Preheat oven to 375. Line jelly roll pan with parchment and spray with nonstick cooking spray.Separate eggs and whip the egg whites on high speed until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup of the sugar and beat on high until stiff peaks form. Transfer the mixture to a new bowl.
Add the egg yolks to the bowl of the stand mixer and whip on high speed with the paddle attachment until thick and pale yellow, around 5 minutes. Gradually add in the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, beating continuously.
Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for 8 to 12 minutes. When the cake is done baking, the edges will begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and the center will spring back when pressed.
Transfer the cake to the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.Before serving, top the cake with banana slices and sprinkle with powdered sugar and ground cinnamon, if desired.
