Scale

Ingredients

  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 2 1/4 C whole milk
  • 3 large egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon banana extract
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 bananas, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 tbsp cashew pieces
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk 1/4 C of the sugar and all of the cornstarch together. Whisk in 1/4 C milk and then transfer to medium sauce pan. Add the egg yolks and mix until smooth.Whisk in the remaining milk and bring to a boil over medium heat. Make sure to use a high heat spatula and scrape the sides and bottom of pan to avoid sticking.
  2. Continue to cook until thickened (about 3 minutes).

  4. Divide into 4 dessert glasses.
  5. To caramelize the bananas, combine the remaining 1/2 C sugar and 2 tbsp water in a large skillet. Cook over medium high heat, moving the pan constantly to cook the sugar evenly and cook until golden brown, about 6 minutes.
  6. Add the remaining butter, sliced bananas and cashew pieces and cook an additional minute.
  7. Remove from heat and add salt and stir.
  8. Spoon over warm pudding and serve
