A few weeks ago some friends and I went out to a brazilian steak house to celebrate me winning a BJJ tournament and one thing they bring is fried banana to the table. They are incredible, sweet, creamy, buttery, but not overwhelming. I knew I had to recreate this in a vape. Super simple and super easy.
Good to SnV but better with 3 days steep.
If you don't have HS caramel you can use FLV in place, or FA. If using FA adding in .25-.5% FLV butterscotch helps creating a creamy, buttery caramel.
Mixed for a user in the Weekly "Suggest a Recipe for my flavors" thread. This is an odd profile, a Creamy guava vape. It's pretty calming and smooth and a great vape if you enjoy the taste of guava. There are a few changes I would make looking back but this is the original recipe. Some changes you could implement : dropping FA Meringue (this milks the recipe up so drop it if thats not what you want), adding TFA Dragonfruit 1% (would help to bridge the fruits and make them just all around brighter), and maybe adding 0.75% of EM for those who need sweeteners.
This is a remix of the infamous circus cookie e liquid. It was created by 3 mixers including myself Aaron Vause and John N Jill Szollosi so credit has to go to all 3 of us.
Many a long night was spent creating this e liquid and finally after 8 versions between as all we came up with this finished version which all all agreed is very tasty.
Here are some notes.
FA cookie / cap sugar cookie / FW hazelnut
This created the cookie Base for the recipe we decided on cap sugar cookie for the main staple for the cookie but it does tend to hide behind other flavourings so needed some boost to make it shine. A small amount of fa cookie and FW hazelnut gives the cookie abit more weight and flavour and makes the cookie more enjoyable and noticeable on the exhale. Without the additions the exhale was somewhat lacking the texture of a hearty cookie.
Cap butter cream
This adds the butter cream into the cookie and rounds of what otherwise would be a dry biscuit flavour.
FA meringue / fa marshmallow / Tfa VBIC / fa joy
This creates the icing that you find on circus cookies and totally plays an important role in the recipe. We could of gone with loranns cream cheese icing but it tends to overpower and gives a waxy texture that seems to artificial. Adding meringue boosts the sweetness alongside adding weight to the marshmallow which is the star of the show. The VBIC combined with the meringue and marshmallow creates a perfect icing that totally works in conjunction with the cookie. FA joy is the magical addition that ties the icing together and creates the sprinkles over the icing.
INW shisha Strawberry
The recipe required a candy Strawberry flavour for the icing and after playing with capella sweet Strawberry it didn't cut the mustard and faded considerably with the other ingredients so after playing around with INW shisha Strawberry again a Strawberry known for its candy aspects we found it a bolder Strawberry that held its own against the other flavours and worked in its favour.
So imagine the experience you get that full on bold Strawberry inhale that turns into creamy icing with sprinkles that ignites buttery cookie. Perfect all day vape experience that will want you lusting for more.
Add sweetener should you wish
0.5% seems to be the sweet spot.

After the Modest Monday post a few weeks back on fruit and cream, I really wanted to play around with the dewberry cream recipe put up. I've never had Kilo's dewberry and cream, but honeydew is my girlfriends favorite fruit so I thought I'd make something for her. Turns out this is one of the best fruity vapes I've ever had.
Notes in the September 2016 recipes thread
In my quest for that perfect doughnut to suit my wants of greasy doughy frosted sweetness I decided to take a different route. Any flavors I had that matched the dough character I added at around the normally used percentages. What cake out of it was shake and vape goodness that will only get better. To me it tastes like a full bodied old fashioned buttermilk doughnut with that thick sugar glaze coating. Precisely what I wanted it to taste like. I may revisit this and add either cap custard at 2% or fa custard at 2% or maybe even a Bavarian cream at 2% would suit this nicely. If you decide to add some custard to this one I would feel you could safely omit the marshmallow and meringue.

This is my remix of the popular UK e liquid lemon tart by dinner lady e liquids.
DIYorDIE Runner up recipe of the year!!!
This was a very long journey and i hope i've done some justice in attempting to copy it..... even if i did'nt ha i hope i've created a tasty lemon tart for you all to enjoy. I've managed to create its profile very well with sharp lemon curd followed by a creamy fluffy meringue finishing off with a buttery pastry crust.
FW Lemon meringue pie
I needed a profile to start with and this flavour seemed to work,its profile works very well with the other ingredients its lemon flavour is very bright and more forward and stronger than capellas offering. The meringue and pastry wasn't an issue at the time because i knew that could be worked on. The 3% was enough as a starting point without it taking over the recipe.
FA Lemon Sicily/Capella Juicy Lemon
This was the most tricky part of the recipe theres so many lemons to chose from it was a minefield and completely had my headspinning. I tried them all in various percentages and combinations. some were to authentic taking on a sour aspect that didn't suit the profile. I knew i already had a good lemon within the FW lemon meringue pie,but it wasn't bright enough. Everyone knows FA lemon sicily is a fantastic lemon so i had to use it. I pushed it to higher percentage because the lemon was the main profile of dinner lady lemon tart. It's vibrant and not sour and it really started to work in what i was trying to achieve. Again this was probably enough to complete the lemon profile but i was concerned overtime it might fade so another lemon i really liked and thought it would complement is capella juicy lemon. Adding a small percentage just built on each other creating a bolder lemon with some added sweetness and juice. They really work well together and that was the lemon complete.
FA Custard PI 3.14
I needed something to create the curd aspect i tried alot of variations and to this day this is one aspect that still bugs me and is something i'll go back to. However this seems my best option so it stays for the time being. It seems to work very well with combining with the lemons and the pie. Its not a heavy custard like capella vanilla custard which i did try and to some degree it works,but it does add vanilla which i didn't want in the recipe. Custard pi gives it that creamy curd feel and the custard also has citrus notes which is a win win and really works well into the lemons to create a kind of curd.
TFA Graham Cracker Clear/INW Biscuit/Capella Golden Butter
These 3 created the pastry base and worked excellent into the lemon meringue pie base. I love graham cracker clear and i think its in the original it lends to a nice creamy biscuit base and adding the biscuit at a lower percentage and the butter works its magic in creating a nice pastry filling.
We all now about this flavour it just works!!!! its in the original and it had to be in here. it's really forward in the original and pushing it to 1.5% is enough to give you that fluffy light mouthfull.
I added 0.75% mainly down to it being mainstream juice the original is sweet so why not,a little of whats good doesn't hurt . I also feel it tones down the lemons and turns them more into a cooked lemon rather than a sour fresh squeezed lemon. you can leave it out should you wish its still great without it.
TFA Bavarian Cream
I added this at a small percentage just to combine the whole recipe ,it also works well into the custard and lemons and hopefully ups the curd aspect aswell as adding a little glue to the recipe and not drying it out.
