Toasted Sundaes,yes please!

I recently hosted a small dinner party with some of my besties, and the dinner turned out perfect.  While everyone was raving about the food, and I was racking my brain thinking of what to serve for dessert!  I had been so stressed about the fact that it had been raining all day long and I had planned to grill up some perfect steaks and bbq chicken for dinner, that I hadn’t really thought about dessert.  To be honestly, I was secretly praying that everyone would be too stuffed from the meal to pay any attention to dessert. And then I tuned back to the conversation which had taken a turn to excitement about ‘oh the food was so good, can’t wait to see what’s for dessert!’. Oh boy.

Luckily, I remembered that I had some pound cake in the freezer and quickly looked through the pantry to find the other fixings I needed to make sundaes. Hey, who doesn’t like a little ice cream & cake???

Pound Cake – 1/2″ slices
Butter – 2 tbsp for cake 3 tbsp for bananas
Brown Sugar – 1/4 cup
Banana – sliced at a diagonal, as many as you please
Ice Cream – Vanilla or other preferred flavor
Walnuts – chopped optional
Chocolate Syrup – for drizzle
Maraschino Cherries – optional

To toasted the pound cake:
In a non-stick pan, melt 2 tbsps of butter, and add the cake slices. Toast on med-low heat for 2-3 mins, flip over and toast the other side. Remove from heat and set aside.
Note: The slices can be toasted in a toaster or in the oven.

To caramelize the bananas:
To the non-stick pan, melt 3 tbsps of butter, and add the brown sugar, mix until melted, add the banana slices. Brown the banana slices on med-low heat,keeping an eye on the bananas so the sugars don’t start burning. Flip over, once there is a nice brown glaze to the slices. Same for the other side, remove from heat when browned well.

To Assembly:
In an bowl, place the toasted cake slice at the bottom, add scoop(s) of ice cream, drizzle chocolate syrup, sprinkle with chopped walnuts, with a cherry on top!

Happy Eating!
