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 wonderful memories I will forever cherish and miss of her, one of the things I will miss most are her amazing desserts.
Thankfully I was able to capture almost all of my mothers recipes on paper before it was too late, and now I can continue the tradition of making these delightful desserts for my family. Hopefully they too will embrace the tradition of our love for food and pass that treasured gift on to future generations.
One of my favorite desserts that my mom made was her famous chocolate layered cake. Her favorite 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 techniques have evolved a bit from hers into a bit more of an “old- fashioned style” of making things from scratch, when ever possible.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. Whether it’s made from a box mix or from scratch, with bananas, strawberries or your favorite fruit – I hope it becomes one of your family’s favorites desserts too.
Enjoy and “Thanks Mom”!
