Check out this recipe on Spike Bakes. Thanks Spike for a wonderful summer pick!
The star of this dessert is the crust. Buttery coconut and shortbread cookies! Magically, it tastes even better than it sounds!
On top of the crust is a thin layer of sliced banana. I did not dig the frozen banana taste or texture. I ended up digging them out. Not really a fan of frozen fruit.
There was another ripe banana mixed into the ice cream. I couldn't really taste it so much. Perhaps because I used German Chocolate Cake ice cream instead of plain chocolate so there was caramel and fudgey cake pieces for the banana to contend with.
This was a great dessert to have waiting in the freezer when my mom came up this weekend. After a yummy dinner of spicey Thai curry, this was perfect for sitting on the balcony in the cool summer evening.
Bread pudding is good. Many people think not, but if it's made right it's delicious! Made badly, it's soggy bread. Gross.
Armed with Dorie's Apple Apple Bread Pudding recipe, it wasn't difficult. It's not a quick recipe, because you have to let the custard soak into the bread, and then bake for over an hour. In the end, it was worth it. I think it could be a breakfast dish and dessert. I haven't yet tested out this theory, but there is a little left in the fridge so tomorrow morning will be a little sweeter.
I made one-third of the recipe, and used all 1% milk instead of whole milk and cream. It worked perfectly! Still very good and the proportions didn't seem thrown off by the reduction in servings as sometimes happens.
Thanks Elizabeth of Cake or Death? for a great pick this week!
I think everyone is thanking Becky of Project Domestication this week! This was amazing...even if I did have a llittle problem...
It's ice cream, minus the ice. Mine never froze! It got very cold but even hanging out in the freezer overnight didn't help. Weird.
But it didn't matter, it was delicious caramel. Finger and bowl licking good, which is why I ended up with a very small bit foor picture taking time. No worries, I will be making this again!
