This is one of those recipes that makes me so glad that there are more creative people out there than me. Sometimes I seriously start to think that all the good ideas have been had, but then I’m wowed by some awesome idea or flavor combination, and my faith in humanity is restored. (My brother Nate told me about Zipcar the other day. That was one of those times. “Way to go, humans,” I thought.)
I put this stuff in my mouth and thought that again: Way to go, humans. We are so awesome for coming up with something this magical. And by we I mean not me. I’m not the kind of person who can taste something in a restaurant and go home to successfully recreate it. Which is exactly what the recipe author (Not Without Salt) did: tasted it in a restaurant and went home and made it. I mean come on, Roasted Banana Whipped Cream? Doesn’t it just scream hoity toity restaurant/I’m charging you 8 bucks for this?
I would pay 8 bucks for this pudding though. It is that good. But I don’t have to, because I can make it at home. This pudding is not your average Snack Pack. It is thick and luscious and way too rich. And do you see those roasted bananas? I made an extra batch. Just to eat. All by myself. Way to go, humans.
