Yum! What more can I say? We all enjoyed these (made 6 individual custard pots) - although I much prefered it cold, the 'boys' liked it hot & cold! I used a whole egg, 2 tabs sugar (brown sugar/splenda mix), and will definately be making these again! Thanks Barb!
I am familiar with this recipe from the New York Times Natural Foods Cookbook, 1971 (minus the sugar and egg substitute options, of course). It is a good one! To my taste, the banana and potato are plenty sweet and tasty, so I don't normally add sugar, cinammon, or the raisins. I often substitue one whole egg for the two yolks, for convenience. Any form of milk seems to work fine (such as regular skim or whole). This can be made as one large casserole or individual servings; either way, it reheats well after being refrigerated.
