This is a cinnamon roll with a banana slice and a caramel glaze on top. Caramel cinnamon roll does the heavy lifting in terms of providing most of the bakery here. The banana is a combo of sa Banana flambe which is a nice cooked banana flavor and tfa bananas foster which brings some brown sugar to the mix. VT Salted caramel boosts the caramel note already here and adds to the dark sweetness I was going for.
I based this recipe off "Fugly Butters" @Ebc88 "This is a fried banana pudding" & Bad Drips "Ugly Butter " description: "They don't call it ugly for nothing... Uncle Freddy's famous, fancy fried dough, showered with carnival cultivated cinnamon-sugar, serenaded with a cosby-quality banana pudding."
So, here it goes...
FLV Vanilla Pudding/VT Pudding Base: these 2 combined make up a delicious "Cosby-esque" vanilla puddin'
SA Banana Flambe: gives the fried banana aspect and also adds a touch of cinnamon...
VT Banana Custard: ties together the banana flambe with the pudding while adding some more depth to the banana pudding aspect of the recipe
FLV Rich Cinnamon: turns up the cinnamon flavor.
CAP Funnel Cake: In Bad Drips description they talk of funnel cake and Capella had just dropped their funnel cake around the time that Ugly Butter hit the shelves, so I figure it's in there... so why not?
WF Cinnamon Pastry: no reason other than I just picked this up and wanted to give it a try... plus I figured it would add some more depth to the bakery/dough aspect of the recipe while adding a bit more cinnamon... which it seems to do just fine...
TPA Toasted Marshmallow: to add a little sweetness, mouthfeel, depth and body to the entire recipe.
CAP SS: why not?... It's a tooth rotting belt busting State Fair Treat... it needs to be sweet! 0.5% does just that... add more or don't if you want to...
FA Joy: to bring out the yeasty-ness of the fried dough just a lil more... feel free to omit it... I personally don't care for joy either, but it works well here...
3 day steep and the banana calms down... day 5 the pudding melds together and everything tastes delicious... didn't make it past a week with the first batch, so I don't know if it'll change much at the 2 week mark...

Mixed for the mixen vixens the image this week looked to me to be a graham cracker base with a philly cream cheese filing and a banana flambe topping
On the inhale of the vape you get the dark sweet caramelized notes followed by the sweet vanilla cream cheese and slight cooked caramelized banana finish
FW Graham Cracker is a solid graham cracker with some vanilla butter notes - it creates the base for this mix along with JB biscut for some additional texture and butter notes
INW yes we can cheesecake and INW creme brulee work well together to create a creamy filling very similar to the philly cream cheese . It is more of a creamy vanilla then an authentic Italian cream cheese filling. The burnt sugar note of INW cream brulee is also used in this mix to support that flambe note .
The SA banana flambe is a sweet cooked banana, that initally can be a bit like candy but has a really nice full body. It is noticeable on the back end of the inhale but is light on the caramelized sugar and rum. To support the caramelized sugars and syrup I added Jamaican rum, golden syrup and smokey butterscotch FLV smoked butterscotch adds a woody warm note on the back end which is really unique., and build off of the rum. VT golden syrup is a darker sweet syrup that has a nice sticky mouth feel
NOTES/SUB: This is a sweet mix on its own so does not really need sweetner but if you want to add more would recommend FLV sweetness .50%
Banana Flambe can be subed with Molinberry soft banana or WF banana puree ( for a slightly brighter top banana) if you want more of a cake note then TPA banana nut bread has a solid banana note and could work here .
In other versions of this mix I have subed Smokey Butterscotch for FW butter pecan if you do not want that smokey note but you want more texture and swet nuttiness to the mix or WF Butterscotch cream pie for more cream and lighter butterscotch top note .
