This cake is a fun variation of my Nonna Romana's classic Pan di Spagna (sponge cake). Pan di Spagna is a wonderful blank canvas and I find that the Bananas keep it incredibly moist and adds a ton of flavor. The Banana cream is an homage to my mother Angela who jazzed up the traditional custard recipe. The Nutella Mascarpone frosting is all mine since I love Nutella! So there really is a little bit of the three generations in this cake! To me Nutella and Bananas is the ultimate combination and I think it really comes together here.
