Our little one just had her first banana split! As with any iconic dish there is considerable controversy as to its origins. I think it likely made its debut in Pennsylvania but who really knows.
There is no controversy about what makes up a banana split. You need a scoop of strawberry, a scoop of chocolate and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Top the vanilla with crushed pineapple, the chocolate with chocolate syrup and the strawberry with strawberry syrup. Then add some crushed peanuts. Add a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry to each scoop and add a split banana.
Shortly after the photo was taken our little one got her first ice cream headache.
