Bananas can be used as a substitute for oil in pancakes (assuming you like banana-flavored pancakes). And they're VERY good in fruit salad, especially with Bear-Whipping Sauce.
Long-time readers (or maybe it's on my own site that I posted it).... Anyway, when my #4 daughter was younger, I was mixing this sauce. She asked what it was, and I said, "Berry-dipping sauce" and she misheard me. So now it's Bear-Whipping Sauce.
mix equal amounts of brown sugar and mayonnaise.
Trust me--it's delicious!
- apple, cored and cut into chunks
- Bear-Whipping Sauce
I've been known to rinse leftover fruit salad in a colander to wash all the ick off, then add a fresh banana and more BWSauce, but I've discovered a new use for it. The beauty part is that everybody else still goes ICK, so I get it all for myself.
I put the leftover manky fruit salad into oatmeal or over cereal. The mishy banana gets lost in the shuffle and just adds its delicious sweet flavor (and a little body) to the mix.
So ha! for me.
