Banana split for a cause! To help spread awareness for Ovarian Cancer and raise money for research, Foodbuzz is donating $50 for each banana split post that goes up today. So hey, why not? Kelly Ripa and Electrolux are also involved in this great cause – click here to find out more! You can make virtual banana splits; for every one you make, $1 will be donated to the cause. What are you waiting for?
As for my fancy-pants banana split, very simple: vanilla bean ice cream (Edy’s, whatever was available at the local store), with sliced bananas around it in a bowl. Topped with burnt caramel sauce from Recchiuti that I picked up on my last trip to San Francisco, along with their burnt caramel almonds that I chopped really quickly. In between each banana slice, a dried cherry. I didn’t have a banana split dish so I had to slice the banana up, but it made the whole thing a lot easier to eat! The tartness from the cherries balanced against the burnt smokiness of the caramel and almonds… the cool, creamy ice cream and of course the delicious bananas…
Here’s a bonus: picture of a banana split from Eddie’s Sweets Shop for an upcoming post:
