But next time I should premix the pudding.
By the time the pudding settled, i was out of batter but man that last pancake was fucking amazing.
Since Comfort closed its doors, I’ve really regretted not going there more frequently for their legendary Banana Pudding/ Creme Brûlée dessert — which, imo, was among the very best desserts on the planet. I’m not very creative in the kitchen, but I’m curious… Has anyone out there come up with a reasonably accurate recipe for it? If so, I’d love to know what you’ve figured out. Is there perhaps a good recipe out there already?
If memory serves, these are the key things my wife and I remember about it:
It was baked in a buttery shortbread crust. Some folks have suggested vanilla wafers were part of the crust, but I really don’t recall that being a dominant flavor. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think it was a “crumbly” crust.
The creamy “custard” part may have had some banana, but we are pretty certain that it was closer to a traditional, vanilla custard. Assuming that’s correct…
Most of the banana flavor came from the crunchy “brûlée” topping which had thin banana slices embedded in it. I suspect they placed the slices on top and poured sugar over them before torching it… And the fact that they were so thin is probably what allowed them to integrate with that delicious, caramelized top layer.
Here’s a photo of it. Any info y’all can share would be much appreciated! 🙏 I can’t be the only one who has wanted to figure this one out.
I’m not from here, but I’m pregnant and I’m absolutely dying for banana pudding, and peach cobbler, but I want it like really good lol almost like grandmas homemade stuff you know??
