When Emilie and I first started our baking blog, I had no idea just how fun it would be. Not just the baking and trying new desserts, but the part where we get to share our love of baking with our friends and family … and then see those friends try our recipes too! Just the other day Emilie shared her mom’s Banana Flips recipe and right away I knew it had to be good, I mean it looked absolutely amazing, yet simple. Then a few days later I saw one of our blogging friends tried out the recipe on Firefly Blog. I don’t know, it just feels really special to me.
So what do I do? I try the Banana Flips recipe for myself and you could say I flipped for the flips because these are gooooood.
My only itty bitty complaint is that I couldn’t quite get the graininess of the sugar out of the filling, so in the future I may try powdered sugar instead. Otherwise, the cake itself is firm yet moist. Of course if you really love bananas like I do, then you may want to add a dash of the banana extract to the cake mix like I did. It really gives it an extra banana kick.
Rather than just tease you with my Banana Flip picture I do want to share a little decorating tip. If you want an easy way to create a unique look to your dessert and don’t have stencils on hand, you can do what I did and use a baking rack as your stencil. Just lay the rack flat over your dessert and dust with powdered sugar.
