Take a deep sundae dish, one that will hold two disherfuls of cream, and put in one disherful of vanilla ice cream. Over this put some chocolate syrup, a few pieces of sliced bananas and a half teaspoonful of malted milk (powder). Now put in another disherful of vanilla cream and cover with chocolate syrup. Place sliced bananas all around the top with a spoonful of chopped pecans over all. At the top, in the center, place a Maraschino cherry with a toothpick through it.

“This delicacy sells readily for 15 cents and is a trade winner. Of course, you must use your judgment in the making and not be too liberal, because if you are careful you can make a good percent of profit on each sundae. This one has been especially popular with the students in our neighborhood." (W. Arthur Golding.)
