20 Sweets in 20 Weeks - #10: Banana Sundae

9 Cream and Cherry

So I remember saying that this was going to be the ultimate banana sundae - but perhaps it isn't the ultimate - more like an average kinda banana sundae. I had all these hopes and dreams for the most amazing banana sundae ever, but when it came the day to make it - let me just say I had some issues. They weren't food issues that I was having - it was more like screaming children issues. So in the end it was all very rushed - it wasn't as pretty as I wanted, the photos were cruddy and I didn't get to make it all fancy-schmancy. All that being said I did manage to make a banana sundae that consisted of 12 layers of evilness, and while it may not be the ultimate banana sundae I still thoroughly enjoyed eating it.

Looks pretty decadent and fancy-shmancy to me! I always think that caramel goes pretty well with banana, perhaps there would be a caramel layer somewhere in there as well! EPIC!

Paris Pastry said...

Oh dear, how decadent! 12 layers?? Yum! I once I had this amazing banana sundea with vanilla, strawberry & chocolate ice cream, chocolate fudge sauce, caramel sauce, strawberry cream, whipped cream and almonds! It was too big for me alone, but I really enjoyed it.

Some days it would be so nice to lock myself in a room - alone! - and eat an ultimate sundae. Maybe you'll have to try it that way next time. :)

Xiaolu said...

Dang, that is one loaded banana sundae of goodness! I'm almost scared to see what you ultimate one would be ;P. This looks delicious enough to me!

I think I'd go for a layer of carmel somewhere in there, and maybe some chocolate bar (cherry ripe, crunchie... something similar) crumbled up as well!

This looks yummy as though! So. Much. Cream!!

I'd leave out the marshmallows - but only because I don't like anything but roasted marshmallows or melted ones.....I'd be inclined to add a little caramel with it - banana and caramel....mmmmmm

Oh, some serious 'yum' there!

BTW- I don't know what two of the desserts are that we are voting on this week....golden syrup and chocolate buns or berry scrolls.

By the Bluegrass - they are just two sweet recipes that I have found that use yeast.
