lol --- it's hardly baking but I love fresh strawberries chopped, add sugar and dump over ice cream.  Fresh peaches are good over ice cream too.    ............
hmmmmmmmmmm   shoe polish would be good over ice cream. 
Oh - I love ice cream piled over brownies.   I love to use a cookie as a spoon when eating ice cream.

 Sounds like someone has a craving for something with ice cream!? Not naming names but...Nancy! Smile I too love things like that with ice cream. Strawberries are so expensive anymore. i really like them. I made a strawberry cobbler once but I think that strawberries are best by themselves so you can taste 'em. Cookie as a spoon... hummm!

Vicki - when fruits - like strawberries - are in season I buy those large cartons of them then wash, chop, mix in sugar and put them into the little zip-lock snack size bags.  Of course those tiny bags are too thin for freezing so I store the entire pile of snack bags in a gallon size freezer bag. Works for me.   I end up with enough servings of the fruit for a long, long time.

How I wish I could find a way to preserve bananas.   Did I ever tell you how much I love sliced bananas, pecans, caramel  topping and more pecans on ice cream?

I like a mix of blueberries and raspberries sprinkled with a little Truvia (stevia) and perhaps a dollop of whipped cream.

 Nancy bananas don't freeze well? I haven't ever thought about it. They probably turn a yucky brown. eeww  I have tried to freeze strawberries but they never make it that far! Smile A flat of strawberries cost $15.00 from one of the many road side stands last summer. Like everything else the price goes up. I used to buy 4 or 5 flats when they were just $8.00. Road side stands are a good alternative if you don't grow your own as they taste better than from the stores i think. Anyway buying from the stands helps out the little guy.

And i think your dessert sounds good!

i like to make a pound cake   (or lately) a boxed yellow cake
and fix my strawberries  like nancy  and freeze them      and eat it w/ cool-whip
this is a fav for my whole fam  and especially my d.i.l.  also a recipe for sliced peaches too  TEXAS HAS SOME OF THE BEST PEACHES IN THE WORLD  and my sister lives only about 7 mi. from the largest wholesale peach farm       they are freestones          

AND NANCY
who ever told you that you couldn't freeze bananas ?
of course you couldn't slice them for fresh use  because as vicki says they turn into a slimy yucky brown mess         but using them in bread and muffins cakes etc         they have much more flavor and taste than fresh ones

if i want to make banana bread   i actually freeze good bananas at least overnight to use

Nellie -- thanks to this message board I tried freezing some bananas that were getting too ripe.  Yuk.  I was unable to deal with the stuff  that came out of the freezer.    You know I'm a delicate little thing. 
Which reminds me (bananas - not my delicacy)  I have an ancient banana bread in the freezer - it has to go.

nancy,
if you peel them and put in freezer bags w/ just enough for the recipe, you really don't have to  'deal'  with them
just cut corner of bag , close your eyes and dump in the mixing bowl-----------you don't even have to measure them

I pretty much like any kind of fruit.  The last time I had to make room in the freezer I had a huge bag of frozen blackberries that were displaced(lol).  Found a great recipe for a blackberry cream pie on another site and made that.  It was great.  I'll have to post the recipe tomorrow.

First...Bananas freeze very well.  Great for banana bread as well as a smoothie.  A frozen banana can be added to any cake to replace the oil called for..1 Cup mashed banana =1 Cup oil.

As to my favorite fruits.
I have a fondness for an apple cranberry crisp or Betty does not matter what you call it.
I have a Cranberry Streusel Pie that I love.
The Shaker Lemon Pie that I made this summer was exceptionally good.
As far as eating fruit just as fruit.
Peaches but they have to be good and juicy otherwise they get made into a cake.
Pears I'm fond of a Comice pear.
Nectarine and Plums
Oh heck I like most fruits the ones I have found I do not like are...
Durian
Passion fruit
Not particularly fond of Papaya

As far as fruit desserts go, my favorite is apple crisp.  In fact I have one in the oven right now, but I did add some blueberries to it too.  Add some ice cream or  cool whip on top of the warm crisp.  YUM!!!!!

I really like mixing blackberries and raspberries and just eating them.  My husband prefers to put them over ice cream, but he could put just about anything on ice cream, as long as there is ice cream, he's happy.  It has been so difficult to get delicious, juicy peaches the past few years, but I can always rely on getting wonderful peaches at our State Fair every year.  While everybody else is filling up on anything on a stick I'm walking around with peach juice dripping down my chin!

 Cheri I'd be walking around like you with juice dripping down from the peaches also! But then I'd have to have something on a stick! Fair corndogs taste better than ones from the store. Plastered with mustard, of course!

Durian is a fruit found in south east Asia.  I first heard about it on the Travel Channel on a show that Anthony Bourdain did.
The whole fruit is larger than a football and looks like it has pointy spines on it.  Not spines like a cactus but spines like you see on a dog collar.
From what they said on the show it smells so bad that most public places will not allow the fruit, public transport forbids it.
I often wondered if I would ever get a chance to experience it myself.
A restaurant in Chinatown (in Chicago) has a smoothie stand and low and behold one of the smoothies they offered was Durian.  Well I just had to try it.
I think I had 1 sip.  It was possibly the worst thing I have ever tried to consume.  It smelled and tasted worse.  I think the sewer grate I poured my $4.00 smoothie down even belched.
But I can now say I tried it.
By the way the texture of the fruit is slimy so ya got that on top of the gross smell.
Do a google of it and see if it is something that you might want to try next time you wander through an Asian market as I do think it is sold frozen.
Oh and I think I saw on another show that the fruit is dangerous because it can harm you if it falls from the tree.  I think they put nets under the trees to keep people from getting hurt.
