Triple Layered Banoffee Mousse Cake

Posted on

This dessert features a moist, squiggly banana sponge layered with salted caramel mousse, topped with a salted caramel layer and dark chocolate shavings. My recipe is egg-free and can be made without dairy, making it easy to whip up.

We start by making the soft banana sponge, which comes together in just one bowl. For the creamy caramel mousse, we use my three-ingredient caramel, whipped with cream for a beautifully light texture. It’s finished with a layer of gooey caramel and a dusting of chocolate shavings.

Triple Layered Banoffee Mousse Cake

Course Dessert


For the Base:

  • 1 cup of dates pitted
  • 1 cup of almonds
  • Pinch of salt

For the Banana Layer:

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup of coconut cream chilled, the solid part from a can of coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup or agave syrup

For the Caramel Layer:

  • 1 cup of dates pitted
  • 1/4 cup of almond butter
  • 1/4 cup of coconut milk or as needed for desired consistency
  • Pinch of salt


Prepare the Base:

  • In a food processor, blend the dates, almonds, and salt until the mixture sticks together when pressed.
  • Press this mixture firmly into the bottom of a lined cake tin or springform pan to create the first layer of your cake. Place it in the freezer while you prepare the next layer.

Make the Banana Layer:

  • Blend the ripe bananas, coconut cream, and maple syrup/agave syrup until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour this mixture over the base layer in the cake tin, spreading it out evenly. Return to the freezer while you prepare the caramel layer.

Prepare the Caramel Layer:

  • Blend the dates, almond butter, coconut milk, and a pinch of salt until smooth. Add more coconut milk if needed to achieve a thick but spreadable consistency.
  • Spread the caramel mixture over the banana layer in the cake tin.

Chill and Serve:

  • Place the cake in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or until firm.
  • Before serving, let the cake sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes to soften slightly. This will make it easier to slice.
  • Garnish with sliced bananas, chopped nuts, or a drizzle of melted dairy-free chocolate if desired.
  • Enjoy!
  • Serve slices of your Triple Layered Banoffee Mousse Cake chilled and delight in the creamy, caramel banana flavors without any eggs or dairy!
