The Ultimate Banana Split

The Ultimate Banana Split | From SugarHero.com

Ultimate. Ginormous. Towering. Honkin’. Pimped out. Pick your giant adjective of choice–however you want to describe it, this is one hyoooooge* banana split! *I hope you said this with a Donald Trump voice, because I sure did. Folks, today is National Banana Split Day, and as we all know, I am a slave to these…

Banana Meringue Cake with Cinnamon-Sour Cream Ganache

Banana Meringue Cake | From SugarHero.com

Riddle me this: why do bananas only have a 2-hour window in which they are the perfect texture? I buy them slightly green, and they stay slightly green for days and days. If I try to eat them early, they’re hard and astringent and barely sweet. Then all of a sudden every single banana in…

Banana Bread Tiramisu

Banana Bread Tiramisu | From SugarHero.com

I love banana bread. I love tiramisu. I love making recipes with a bajillion components (although I kind of hating writing out those long recipes…sigh). I really love putting on my fancy pants and going to town with frou-frou decorations. So obviously, these banana bread tiramisus in edible chocolate wrappers are basically my own culinary…

Banana Coconut Macadamia Nut Bread

Whew, you guys dodged a bullet there! I have bad sleeping habits (ie, I don’t) and I generally end up writing these posts late at night, way past my bedtime. Last night I wrote a long, somewhat melodramatic post that was brought on by a sad blog I’d found and my overtired brain. It started…

Mini Banana Split Cakes – And A Giveaway!

Can we all agree that it’s summer already? I don’t care what the calendar says. Summer solstice, shummer shmolshtice. Graduations are happening, temps are rising, and there’s been a suspicious number of popsicles consumed at my house already. (Also a lot of boring blog entries that talk about hot weather. Sorry—I am seriously such a…

Chocolate-Dipped Frozen Bananas

Big news. BIG NEWS!! Sorry to shout, but I’m way too excited to be bothered by social niceties like moderating my Internet tone of voice. (Tone of type?) Do you know what’s happening one week from today? I’ll give you a hint: it starts with an “A,” ends with an “rrested Development,” and is only…

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, I had a baby somewhat recently. In the first few weeks after giving birth, before I’d received approval to start exercising again, I was full of daydreams about how awesome it was going to be to get back in shape. I pictured intense, sweat-drenched workout sessions and virtuous meals chock full of fresh vegetables….

Roasted Banana Bundt Cake (and the World’s Best Frosting)

I was excited about this cake for about two hours. See, it’s a fun twist on the traditional banana bundt cake. Instead of adding banana puree to a cake batter, the banana pieces are roasted with butter and brown sugar, then the golden bruleed bananas and their syrupy juices are added to the cake. Think…
