The fifty-ninth recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Cake and Banana Toss with Spiced Chocolate Drizzle, can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 275. The theme for this week, I've Got a Sweet Tooth, was chosen by Peggy.
Ingredient list: angel food cake, dark chocolate, bananas, and cinnamon.
Mark's dad started it all too many years ago to even count...at the end of every meal should be a little something sweet to eat. Just a little something, doesn't have to be much, although much is always appreciated by him. And so it goes, Mark is always appreciative of a little sweet something at the end of the meal (and if there isn't something, he has a stash of chocolate next to his tv watching chair).
This recipe was incredibly easy to put together, some torn pieces of angel food cake (she suggests store bought), sliced bananas, melted chocolate with cinnamon swirled into it drizzled on top, and there you have it, a nice sweet treat for dessert within literally a couple of minutes. (Yes, I know I can't drizzle, I am not a chocolate fan and messing around with it is not my favorite by a long shot so I just sort of plopped it on there and called it a day. It tastes the same, right?) You could vary the fruit any number of ways to match seasonal availability. Definitely worthy of a repeat.
