My mother was amazing. Everything she touched somehow became beautiful – including her food. My mom passed away on November 1, 2016, and along with all of the beautiful memories I will forever cherish and miss of her, one of the things I will miss most are her fabulous desserts.
Thankfully I was able to capture almost all of my mother’s recipes on paper, and now I can continue the tradition of making her desserts for my family. Hopefully, they will embrace my love for food and pass this treasured gift on to future generations.
One of my favorite desserts was my mothers famous chocolate layered cake. Her ideal way to make it was with a boxed cake mix, bananas, and fresh whip cream. However, as much as I love her original recipe, my cooking style has evolved into a desire to make things from scratch whenever possible.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. Whether you decide to make yours from a box or scratch, with bananas, strawberries or your favorite fruit – I hope it becomes one of your family’s favorites desserts too.
Enjoy and “Thanks, Mom”!
