Banana Chocolate Cake with Marshmallow Cream

Banana Chocolate Cake with Marshmallow Cream

It has been one of those weeks that desperately required a sweet.  Not just any little ole sweet but a down and dirty, honest to goodness, sweet.  Which for me is anything that includes chocolate. I think this cake has it all.  It’s totally and unabashedly sweet. The kind of sweet that requires either a large glass of milk or a lovely cup of tea.  A cake rich with banana, dark chocolate, marshmallow cream and another drizzle of chocolate....

Garam Masala Spiced Pear Galette with Dark Chocolate Sauce

My culinary journey has been a winding road.  Sometimes with hairpin turns and sometimes with steep uphill jogs.

All I can say about this recipe is WOW!  I don’t prepare many sweets at home as I’ll be the one consuming all that sugar.  However, a few weeks ago my friend Heidi sent me this recipe.  I finally had a chance to prepare it and it literally took 3 hours and every bar was gone.  I quickly blamed our big old dog, Elwood (our Airedale Terrier),  I thought he’d snagged all the bars off the kitchen counter!
