Susan Russo recently wrote an amazing cookbook called The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches. I am sure you’ll be hearing about it more on The Family Kitchen soon. One of the recipes I’ve been seeing around a lot is Susan’s idea for the banana split sandwich, two pieces of poundcake enclosing bananas and ice cream. I love the idea of it but I don’t want to make a whole huge poundcake just to make on sandwich. So, since I had a loaf of banana bread on the counter I decided to use that instead. I cut two thick slices from the loaf and layered in sliced bananas a whipped cream for a fun banana split sandwich. We each took a fork and dug in for dessert after dinner. It was cute and fun, all in one!
