Just found this recipe and it looks like a dynamite dessert that I will be trying real soon! Sliced bananas are folded into a creamy homemade custard, then topped and broiled with a crusty golden almond topping. Recipe from Canadian Living magazine.

  1. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with sugar and set aside.
  2. In saucepan, heat cream and milk together until bubbles form around the edge, then whisk into egg mixture.
  3. Return to pan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer to clean bowl and stir in vanilla.
  5. Place plastic wrap directly on top of custard and refrigerate until cold.
  6. Slice bananas and gently fold into custard.
  7. Spoon into eight 4" ramekins.
  8. In small bowl, mix flour with almonds and sprinkle evenly over custard and pat lightly.
  9. Broil until topping is crusty and golden, but bananas remain cool- about 2 minutes.

I was browsing thru recipzaar and was prompted to join the site when I saw this posting. I saw this recipe at the CL website and was intrigued so I tried it...big surprise because CL almost never lets me down but it was a BIG disappointment...the combination of the bananas and custard was lovely...and the almonds on top was fine except for that flour in the topping...gave a weird raw flour flavour and hard to describe texture. You could get a better end result by just using toasted almonds on their own. MHO..someone else might have better results
