Happy Friday! I know everyone says that middle of September is the end of summer; but that’s not the case here in San Diego. This month has been crazy hot. Last weekend it was 105 degrees and everyday is consistently at least in the 80s. The way we beat this heat is with fans, hanging out in the pool, and ice cream – and lots of it!
One super hot day recently, I wanted to create an ice cream cake to keep us cool. I didn’t have the time to make an ice cream cake completely from scratch, but what I did have was some ice cream sandwiches on hand. I ended up coming up with a cake made of layered ice cream sandwiches, whipped cream, and bananas. The flavors I used resembled a Banana Royal dessert – a dessert made of vanilla ice cream topped with bananas, hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry – so I ended up calling this a Banana Royal Ice Cream cake.
For added sweetness, I drizzled caramel sauce on top of each slice. But of course this isn’t necessary.
This cake is easy and uses very simple ingredients. It’s the perfect ice cream cake that will impress everyone without having to much work into it.
