So the hubs' birthday is coming up, and I've been looking for birthday treat inspiration. Specifically banana based dessert inspiration. I may just have to give this delicious recipe a whirl.

Butterscotch Pudding
makes 4 servings

½ t kosher or flaky sea salt
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

Whisk together the brown sugar, cornstarch, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan, then whisk in milk and cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking frequently. Continue to whisk for 1 minute then remove from heat and add the butter and vanilla. Pour into a bowl, then cover surface with wax paper or plastic wrap. Chill until cold, at least 1 1/2 hours.

Roasted Banana Whipped Cream
2 ripe bananas, cut in 1” chunks
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon Rum
Once cool puree the bananas in a food processor.

2 cups softly whipped cream

In a large saucepan over medium high heat add the butter and brown sugar. Continually stir the sugar taking care that it doesn’t burn. Cook until the butter and sugar have melted together. Add the bananas and quickly cook for just about 1 minute. You want the edges to caramelize and coat in the sugar. Turn off the heat and carefully add the rum. Stir everything together and set this aside to cool.
Add some of the banana mixture to the whipped cream and whisk to combine. This is done to taste.

  1. That Butterscotch pudding looks insanely good!

  2. I will try the pudding since my BF's birthday is in 10 days, and he has a sweet tooth! So, your hubs is an Aquarius too?

  3. That looks really good!

    Also, banoffee pie is killer.


I love hearing your thoughts - it seriously makes my day!
