Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Freeze ripe bananas in their peels when they can't be used right away. Thaw each banana 30 to 60 seconds in microwave before using in recipes.
  • tip 2
    Try serving with a scoop of your favorite ice cream for a more indulgent treat.
  • tip 3
    Switch things up by serving the cake in triangles instead of squares. Cut the cake lengthwise in half and crosswise in fourths; cut squares diagonally in half.
