      2    Baskets (1-pound) fresh
           -strawberries, hulled,

           -package sliced frozen

      8 md Bananas, peeled, cut into
           -1/3-inch-thick slices
           Additional fresh
           Additional bananas
           Whipped cream
           Fresh mint sprigs(optional)
  Cake: Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1-inch
  jelly roll pan with vegetable oil spray. Line bottom of pan with
  waxed paper, extending paper slightly at short ends; spray paper.
  Using electric mixer, beat 5 eggs, 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar,
  1-3/4 teaspoons vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large bowl until
  mixture triples in volume and is thick enough to fall in heavy ribbon
  when beaters are lifted, about 12 minutes. Sift 1/2 cup plus 2
  tablespoons flour over batter in 2 additions, gently folding just to
  combine after each addition. Drizzle 2 1/2 tablespoons butter over
  and fold in gently (do not overmix or batter will deflate). Pour
  batter evenly into prepared pan.
  Custard: Place milk in medium saucepan. Scrape in seeds from vanilla
  bean; add bean. Bring to boil. Whisk yolks, sugar and flour in medium
  bowl until smooth. Gradually whisk in hot milk mixture. Return
  mixture to pan; whisk over medium heat until custard thickens and
  boils, about 4 minutes. Strain into medium bowl. Press plastic wrap
  onto surface. Chill until cold, about 3 hours. Using electric
  mixture, beat cream in medium bowl to stiff peaks. Fold cream into
  cold custard. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
  Syrup: Stir sugar and 1/3 cup water in heavy small saucepan over low
  heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat; boil without stirring
  until syrup turns deep amber, brushing down sides of pan with wet
  pastry brush and swirling pan occasionally. Remove from heat. Add 3
  tablespoons water (mixture will bubble vigorously). Stir until
  caramel is smooth. Pour caramel into medium bowl; mix in remaining 2
  tablespoons water. Cool. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; let stand
  at room temperature.)
  Assembly: Sift generous amounts of powdered sugar over 2 kitchen
  towels. Cut around pan sides to loosen cakes. Turn cakes out onto
  prepared towels. Peel off paper.
  Stir jam and 2 tablespoons rum in small bowl to blend. Cut each cake
  crosswise in half. Spread half of jam mixture over 1 piece of each
  cake. Gently press second piece of each cake onto jam.
  Cut cake sandwiches crosswise into 3/4-inch-wide strips. Arrange
  enough cake strips in 3 1/2- to 4-quart glass trifle dish or bowl to
  cover bottom, trimming strips to fit and allowing jam layer to show
  at sides. Brush cake layer with 2 tablespoons rum. Top with half of
  sliced berries, arranging some to show at sides of dish.
