Past and Present TWD

Today's TWD was chosen by Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity. Dolores chose Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream - and what an excellent choice it was. This was a big winner in our house for several reasons. 1. It made a small amount (we're trying to fit into our current wardrobe with all this baking.) 2. We love blueberries and the tanginess of sour cream. 3. We like to use our ice cream maker.

I had stashed several leftover Devilish Shortcakes from last weekend in the freezer and served them alongside this yummy frozen treat.

I didn't make last week's TWD, Black and White Banana Loaf in time for last Tuesday's deadline. Earlier in the week I bought some bananas and they were plenty ripe by Sunday night. My DH needed breakfast for the coming week, so I wanted to make this great selection chosen by Ashlee of A Year in the Kitchen. I'm really glad I did - another winner!

Here it is out of the oven - the marbling looks great from the top.............



But you never truly know until you cut into it.......................................

Not too shabby!

Have a great week!

Look at that marbling! So gorgeous! Nice work!

Great job on both recipes. Glad you enjoyed the ice cream as much as we did. It's worth another round on the elliptical trainer.

The ice cream did make a nice small amount, and I loved the flavors. Your banana cake looks fabulous, great job on the marbling!

Sharon said...

Yum. Yes I guess it is a good thing for the waist line that it makes such a small amount.
