New This Month

Instead of cake and ice cream, try a birthday party dessert inspired by both. This gooey trifle overflows with layers of vanilla cake, vanilla pudding, whipped cream, bananas, and drippy chocolate sauce.

    I totally agree with coffeelovermama - WORST recipe organization I've ever seen on However, brilliant idea. I think I'm going to make one that's more like a traditional banana split - with fresh strawberries and fresh pineapple layers also. Whatever the recipe, I'll make my own vanilla custard - or maybe use ice cream.

    This is the worst organized recipe I've ever seen. I wouldn't put my name to it. Does anyone ever check these before print?

    I made this years ago and it was great. However, since the site update, the pudding recipe is incorrect! I'd just search for another pudding recipe and then continue with this recipe.
