  • You should transfer mixture to heavy saucepan and heat it over medium heat, stirring constantly. Let the mixture come to a boil and boil for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth. Beat in butter a little at a time; then blend in cinnamon. Stir in vanilla extract; let the mixture cool.
  • After that, beat 1 cup of the cream until firm but not stiff and mix about 1/2 cup of the whipped cream into the egg mixture to lighten it. Fold remaining whipped cream into egg mixture then fold in sliced bananas.
