5 learning points when making Banana and Burnt Butter Pudding.

We’ve got a bunch of bananas that were ripening fast so my boyfriend came up with the grand idea of making a banana pudding. I was very encouraging but of course, made sure he understood very clearly that the kitchen must be spotless after he’s done and that he could only use a maximum of 5 utensils.

The one my BF made, looked like this….

Well, here are 5 things you got to remember when you’re making Banana and Burnt Butter Pudding.

1. Don’t leave it in the steamer to “warm” because your dog needs a walk and you’d like to come back from the walk with a nice steaming hot pudding at your disposal.

# – Hrmmm, where is the temperature control when you need it?

Because instead of just “warming”, it’s just going to continue steaming the heck out of it.

2. When recipe states that it’s a recipe for 6 ramekins, don’t divide batter into two rather large bowls because there were just two people eating.

# – More for one person. Yay! Not really….

Because you would end up with too much vaguely banana tasting cake/dough thing for one person.

3. When in doubt, add more fruits.

# – The bowl is too large…

Because of reason number 2 above, the banana:cake ratio would be grossly unbalanced.


4. Don’t follow random comments to adjust recipes until you’ve tried the original one first.

# – There goes a whole block of butter.

Because you would end up melting too much premium butter that would end up in a bin.

5. Follow the damn recipe to a T.Because it probably has a higher chance of working. Seriously.

Yeap, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve guessed it right. We’re filing this under “Cooking Failures” :(

It’s okay baby, I still love you! It’s a constant learning process and we are on this cooking journey together :D

p/s: thanks for the blog material though, hehehe.

    Yah maybe I was a little over ambitious seen as though I’ve never made steamed pudding before…

    But it actually tasted surprisingly good, just the ratios were WAY WAY out. Need to try again with smaller bowls and MORE bananas!

    i think the end result really doesn’t look bad at all tho, can look even better on a square plate, hehe
