Moist brown butter banana bread is layered with sweet cinnamon chocolate pecan streusel. Chocolate, pecan, and cinnamon is one of my favorite flavor combinations. Add in sweet bananas and nutty brown butter and you have a winning combination. This is a great sweet slice to have with breakfast but is also the perfect anytime snack. Add a little vanilla ice-cream to a warm slice and you have a great simple dessert too.
Store bought mini cruller donuts are used as the base of this easy no-bake strawberry shortcake. Slice some berries and whipped up a light sweetened mascarpone and dessert is ready in 5 minutes. Like the Barefoot Contessa taught us if you don’t have homemade “store bought is fine”.
These cupcakes combine tangy fresh blackberries with rich dark chocolate. Dark chocolate cake is filled with a creamy sweet whipped blackberry mascarpone and topped with rich blackberry dark chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. Sprinkle the whole thing with chocolate curls and top with a fresh blackberry.
