Banana Bread Sundae from author @DarylWoodGerber

From Daryl aka Avery:

I was starving for a quickie afternoon snack and in desperate need of spoiling myself. Ever felt like that?

I scoured the refrigerator but nothing was whetting my appetite. I had banana bread on hand. Okay, great, I thought. With a cup of coffee. Fine. But it wasn't wowing me and I needed to be wowed, so then I thought, hmmm, what about a sundae. I have all the fixings.

So here's an idea, in case you need some inspiration to make a sundae of your own so you can spoil yourself.

What do you have on hand?

Get the prettiest sundae cup you can find.

Cut up cookies or whatever you like and let's get started.


Whipped cream. Spritz some in your glass.

Now, cut up your bread or cookie and put it on the whipped cream.

Drizzle with your favorite syrup. I used Hershey's chocolate.

Spritz more whipped cream.

Now add a scoop of ice cream. Top with whipped cream. Drizzle with more syrup. Voila!

Here's the recipe for my banana bread, if you want to get started!


4 tablespoon oil

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg plus 2 egg whites

3 ripe bananas, mashed

1 teaspoon Alcohol-free Vanilla

2 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup sweet rice flour

¼ cup soy flour

¼ cup potato starch

¼ cup tapioca starch

½ teaspoon xanthan gum

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons baking soda

½ cup chocolate chips or nuts (if desired)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In bowl, mix oil, sugar, eggs, bananas, vanilla, milk, vinegar.

Add in flours, starches, xanthan gum, cinnamon and baking soda.

Stir well.  If desired, add chocolate chips or nuts.

Pour into 9x5 loaf pan rubbed with oil.  Bake for 45- 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Savor the mystery and say cheese!

  2. Such a great sundae and banana bread recipe!

  3. We make sundaes during the summer by sprinkling split bananas with cinnamon sugar. Then we throw them on the grill till they are hot and caramelizrd. Top with a brownie and chocolate fudge ice cream.

  4. Wow! This looks delicious! I'll have to give it a try :)

  5. You know they say necessity is the mother of invention!
    This is terrific.

    How about toasting the bread? I used to love a toasted pound cake sundae ("used to" because I haven't had one in quite some time).

    It's crazy when your mouth and brain have something in mind and you keep trying to make due with something else. It just doesn't work.

    1. What a great idea, Libby. Toasting it or heating it. Thanks. ~ Daryl

  6. Mmmm.I think I would use this with crushed pineapple and grated coconut. Tada, Tropical Sundae.
