In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and instant banana pudding mix.

Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture alternating with the milk, being sure to begin and end with the flour mixture and not to over mix. Divide batter amongst the three pans; bake for 22-25 minutes or until the cake is golden and begins to pull away from the sides of the pans.

Line banana slices on top of cake. Spread 1/2 of the filling mixture on top of the bananas.

Place next cake layer on top of filling. Repeat with milk mix, filling and final layer.

Frost with Cool Whip and decorate as you wish. I crushed up some Nilla Wafers and sprinkled them on top, placed whole cookies along the sides. Then took my cake decorator kit and designed the top.

BE SURE TO REFRIGERATE! There are perishable items in the cake.

The World’s Best 5-Minute Fudge !

Fudge dessert is great fun for any occasion, its dense sweet texture attracts anyone, and you can make it in a very simple way in the microwave within about 5 minutes. We will get to know it in this article.

  • Ingredients:

° 2 cups (350 g) chocolate chips

° (400 grams) sweetened condensed milk

° 1 tsp of vanilla

  • How to make :

First, add chocolate chips and condensed milk to a microwave-safe bowl.

Pour a can of sweetened condensed milk and 2 cups (350 g) of chocolate chips, preferably a glass bowl. Stir them gently together.

You can also utilize a ground chocolate bar.

We heat the mixture for 30 seconds in the microwave. Stir the mixture well after leaving the microwave and be careful because the glass bowl will be hot.

Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as well, so it doesn’t burn

After stirring the mixture and making sure that the mixture melts well, then add a teaspoon of vanilla and stir it again and be careful of increasing the temperature of the chocolate so that it does not burn and be dry and crumbly

You can now add any toppings you like, such as crushed nuts, crumbled cookies, or anything you like

We put the mixture in a tray lined with parchment paper and equalize the mixture with a spoon

Place the tray in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

You should not get out of the refrigerator until after it is fully firm

We bring the cutting board and take the tray out of the refrigerator after it gets tight and we turn it over on the cutting board and remove the butter paper and start by cutting the chocolate bar in the form of small squares or any shape you prefer, and then we put it in an airtight box and take it out of the box at the time you prefer

FAMOUS FUDGE

We’re not going to lie to each other, this start of the week is more difficult than others.
And it is even more complicated for some of you than for others.
Well yes, what, there are no holidays this week!
For all of this and everything else, we need to come together around a little comfort. And my gosh, this easy fudge does its job well.

  • Ingredients :
    ☞ 200g Brazil nuts
    ☞ 150g caster sugar
    ☞ A small can of sweetened condensed milk
    ☞ 400 g of white chocolate
    ☞ 2 large spoon of vanilla flavoring
  • Preparation :
  • Prepare a pastry frame: place it on a silicone mat, oil the bottom and the edges.
    In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, throw the sugar with the Brazil nuts. Caramelize without stopping stirring so that the sugar coats the nuts. Pour on a silicone mat, separate the nuts as you can. Let cool.
  • In another heavy-bottomed saucepan, gently melt the white chocolate with the condensed milk and vanilla, then bring to a low boil for a good 5 minutes (the preparation comes off the edges when you stir).
    Add the caramelized nuts, mix well and pour into the frame. Leave to set for at least 12 hours (will still be soft) to several days.
