Banana Bread to the 9th Power

I've been inspired by a couple yummy desserts I had recently -- Sticky Date Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream and Butterscotch Sauce @ KO Catering and Pies and Bread Pudding, White Chocolate, Banana, Raspberry with Toffee Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream @ The Regal Beagle. They both feature creamy, sweet cold ice cream over a warm, soft, starchy center drenched in a sweet sauce. The contrast of the warm center and sauce delivers everything you love about apple pie a la mode, only substitute the sweet and sour of the apples with sweet and more sweet.

Here's how Idid it:
  1. Cut a slice of my mom's banana bread recipe (or any banana bread recipe you have) in thirds and arrange the pieces on the bottom of a bowl.
  2. Cover with about two tablespoons of butterscotch sauce (recipe)
  3. Microwave about 20-30 seconds on high. Spoon the sauce over the banana bread to soak it.
  4. Cover it with a healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream (recipe)
