I like to glaze whatever fruit I am using first with butter and brown sugar. It just tastes so much yummier. It even tastes yummy on its own, almost like a bananas foster.I usually like to soak the batter overnight. The bread is so much better absorbed and moist that way. Anyways, believe it or not, I didn’t eat much of this. My purpose for baking it was to get rid of the ingredients that were getting old. I didn’t really want to eat it because this was a recipe that I used to make on a regular basis at my other job (with strawberries in the spring/summer and with apples in the fall/winter). And with items I’ve made over and over, it just doesn’t appeal to me to want to eat it. Although using bananas was new for me, most of the other ingredients were the same.
I gave the bread pudding to my neighbors. One neighbor was around when it was fresh out of the oven, so he got to enjoy it hot. He later asked if he can have more…like the whole thing lol. What a greedy ass mofo! This almost seems naked without the ice cream.
When I gave some to my other neighbor later that night, he said it was too much for him alone. So he shared. I felt a little bad for giving it to him cold though. I told him he should pop it in the oven to warm it. But all he had access to was a microwave. Lol and mircrowaving it is a bad idea. It ruins the taste and texture. So he just ate it cold.
Me..I only had a few bites here and there to taste. I guess it is kind of normal. No matter how tasty something is, if I am tasting and making the same thing over and over, the taste doesn’t really seem to tickle my palate as it once did. When I first made the bread pudding, I loved it and couldn’t get enough of it. So unless I try a completely different recipe for a bread pudding, one that gives me a world of difference in the taste, one that rocks the world of my palate, you won’t see me really eating much of it. And once I try it, I will love it, then get sick of that rather quickly too until I find something new and different.
My palate is weird like that. Foods I eat regularly are for survival. Baked goods/desserts are more of guilty pleasures. Aside from chocolate and some chocolate desserts, familiarity bores my palate. Well, maybe..maybe not…I do crave certain things (that I’ve been exposed to over and over) every once in a while. But usually that is when I haven’t had it in a while.
My palate wants to be wowed, discover the unfamiliar, and basically have a foodgasm. So it has to be constantly introduced to something new and unfamiliar to keep it satisfied.
