Sassy little banana puddings for grown ups with a Kahlüa whipped cream topping
Looking for something new to try with those overripe bananas?
This will replace your standard banana bread or pudding recipe for certain.
Who doesn’t love to enjoy a delicious banana pudding? But we’re all grown up now and we can elevate this somewhat gluey staple of All-American cuisine.
This flavor infused Pots De Créme is the perfect make ahead dessert that is light, but so impressive.
My custard has banana “juice” in it as well as high quality vanilla for extra brightness. I add Kahlúa to sweetened whipped cream to top it. Garnish with a sliver of banana cut on a diagonal or a shortbread cookie- because we’re fancy like that now.
Why this recipe works:
- Banana flavor is infused by microwaving over-ripe bananas to release their “juices”
- A simple list of ingredients does not cloud the flavor of the bananas
- Eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla bean create a silky custard baked in a Bain-Marie- or hot water bath
- Whipped cream made even better with a little splash of kahlua and a crisp biscuit or slice of banana
