The King of Rock-and-Roll certainly knew how to make a sandwich.
Fried peanut butter, bananas, and bacon! If you’ve never tried Elvis Presley’s Favorite Sandwich, I suggest you drop everything and give it a go.

The best part is it comes together in 10 minutes, and after a few hours in the slow cooker, you’ll have a delicious warm dessert.
Looking for an extra nod to the King? Serve with a sprinkle with bacon bits.SaveBanana Cream Pie Muddy BuddiesButter with a Side of BreadBanana Cream Pie Muddy Buddies – Butter With A Side of Bread

4. Easy Banana Magic Cake
Magic cakes are pretty impressive. They separate into three distinct and delicious layers when baked.
Just make sure you whip your egg whites to stiff peaks and don’t panic when your batter looks thin. It’s supposed to be.
Having just a little flour is how the middle creates that custard-like texture. Somehow in the baking, the egg whites and flour find their way to the top to form the crust.
With its three different layers, this banana dessert is perfect served alone.SavePan-fried Honey Bananas RecipePublished byNancy Messina

7. Dark Chocolate Banana Nut Pops
Frozen banana pops are easy to make and are a healthier alternative to other frozen desserts.
This recipe involves spooning nut butter over the banana slices and then making stacks.
However, an easier method would be to cut the banana into chunks and insert the sticks, keeping the bananas as solid pieces.
Once frozen, you can dip into melted nut butter, refreeze, and dip into melted chocolate.

BANANA PUDDING – A GREAT WAY TO USE UP 5 OVERRIPE BANANAS!
Banana Pudding is the perfect recipe for using up 5 overripe bananas. So easy to make and pure comfort food, no wonder it’s so popular. Just serve with ice cream!
NB: I first published this recipe for Banana Pudding (one of our favourites) in January 2014 so it was in serious need of a photographic update as my photography has vastly improved since then and my equipment has too.
I’ve come to realise we have a slight banana addiction judging by the number of banana recipes I’ve posted! So anyway back to the original post
After the excesses of Christmas we all need to tighten our belts and save money where we can. Reducing our food waste is a good place to start. As a nation we all throw away far too much food as we just don’t get round to using it before it perishes.
Banana PuddingPlay Video
If you’re anything like me, sometimes your fruit bowl just gets just a bit out of control and before you know it a whole hand of bananas has suddenly gone from ripe to overripe.
Yes you can make banana cake but this usually only uses up a couple of bananas and yes you can freeze bananas but mine tend to never see the light of day once they’ve ventured into the freezer!
So Banana Pudding has become my go to recipe when it comes to salvaging lots of overripe bananas.
It won’t win any beauty contests but it’s gooey in the middle, crispy around the edge and is delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream – true comfort food.
Even better Banana Pudding is quick and simple to make and can will happily stay in a warm oven until you’re ready to serve it. My family love this pudding and polish it with gusto.
It’s great to see fruit which looked fit for the compost heap make such a delicious pud – definitely a win win situation for your purse and your tummy!
