Banana Cream Pie is a tasty dessert. I won't deny that (if partly for fear of the angry looks from my husband who deems it his all-time favorite.) But when I decided to throw a surprise party for my dear husband's 30th birthday, I knew a banana cream pie wouldn't feed our 10 guests. In an effort to find another palate pleaser, I ran across this amazing recipe. I could barely believe the moistness, the flavor, the look... the perfect party dessert.
A couple of slight alterations to the published recipe (from Cooking Light.) I added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract to the cake batter after reading in reviews that the almond flavor was too weak. I also added the fresh raspberries to the top for a visual appeal and opted to drizzle the sauce over the entire cake rather than each individual piece.
I've spent the last several years as a wife and then also a mother, discovering my passion for all things kitchen related (cooking, baking, barbecuing, you name it.) So when I was asked by several of my friends (and family) to share my discoveries I created this blog. Nothing fancy. Just me. Sharing recipes and suggestions that I think you might like. And I want to hear from you too. Please comment as much as possible. It lets me know at least someone is reading!
