Blueberry Whip Cake

I’ve got one more recipe to share using the Kraft products from my basket of fun. If you missed the other two, check out Chocolate Chip Strawberry Pretzel Squares and Boston Cream Cake.  Today, I’ve got this Blueberry Whip Cake that reminded me of the dump cake I shared 3 years ago, a.k.a. Blackberry Cobbler. It’s got a marshmallow base, blueberry pie filling, a cake mix, and COOL WHIP!

Triple Berry White Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I love that overly ripe banana’s can be celebrated, because they are perfect for banana bread! I don’t generally LOVE banana bread unless it’s chalk full of textured goodness. I like nuts, but my kids don’t. Since I’m pretty much obsessed with all things white chocolate, I thought I’d throw them into the banana bread mix, along with all of the delicious berries hanging out in my fridge. Thus was born the Triple Berry White Chocolate Chip Banana Bread in our home.

You can certainly use frozen berries, but I used fresh. The juices in the berries make the banana bread SUPER moist, which is the only way I will eat banana bread! It’s often much too dry for me. I need to SEE the moisture!

Fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries make this banana bread delicious and moist, and the white chocolate chips give a yummy texture.
Ingredients
  • 6 ripe bananas, smashed
  • ⅔ cup melted butter
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 Pinches of salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup strawberries, chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1.5 cups white chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. ) Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. ) In a large bowl, mix mashed bananas and melted butter.
  3. ) Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  4. ) Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.
  5. ) Add the flour last, mix just enough to blend the ingredients; do not over-mix
  6. ) Add white chocolate chips and mix
  7. ) Add chopped strawberries, raspberries, and whole blueberries to the batter and mix them in to distribute evenly through the batter.
  8. ) Spray a few loaf pans or muffin tins.
  9. ) Bake a large loaf pan for 1 hour or muffin tins for 25 minutes.
  10. ) I made 3 mini loaves and 18 muffins with this mixture. Half the recipe for less.

When I bake, I like to makes lots so I can eat a generous portion, and then share with others. Let me say to my delight and chagrin…that I did eat a generous portion of this triple berry bread. I LOOOOOVED the berries oozing out into every moist bite. Berries are still in season for a little while longer, so whip yourself up a batch (or grab frozen all year long)!

Pinterest Challenge

We all love pinterest, oh yes we do. We love to pin the things that we plan to do someday…but a lot of items get lost in the shuffle. I have found that by far, the pinned items that I follow through with the most are my recipes. When I have a hankering for a treat, but not sure what, I’ll browse my pinterest sweet treats page.

I’ve been invited to be a Guest Pinhead for the Pinterest challenge.  The purpose of the challenge is to actually complete things from our Pinterest boards and show them off! I’ve made a good handful of recipes, but LOVED this most recent recipe I tried. For this challenge, I made this delicious Peach Dessert with Cookies and Cream from The Crafting Chicks.

What I loved most about it was the Nilla wafer crust! In their recent, they used an egg, but I decided to substitute a banana for an egg, and oh my–it was a slice of heaven! Seriously, the crust alone with worth this treat, and really any fruit can be added on top with the whipped topping to finish it off! Try it, friends!

Welcome to the October Pinterest Challenge! It’s time to share what you’ve created from your Pinterest boards.

Here are some things that a few of us have been making? Check it out:
