|Milk Marshmallow Cereal Strawberry Breakfast Cream Conspiracy #Notaclonecc Attribution Non Commercial No Derivatives 4.0||
Simple no-frills base for a fried banana ice cream treat, for the DoD weekend mixing assignment.
TFA Banana cream / FW white chocolate - these two combine to create a sugary cooked banana flavour.
This creates an effect like the natural caramelisation of the sugars in the banana when fried.
Needs a couple of days for this effect to blossom.
VBIC/Meringue - the ice cream base. Meringue adds some nice additional sweetness and texture.
Strawberry Ripe - contributes a jammy quality to the cooked banana and is also used in place of sweetener.
I could see some caramels or nuts (almond, peanut butter, walnut) as well as spices like cinnamon being nice additions to the base.
I took some inspiration for the profile from falon1000's "strawberry wafer" recipe.
This was a profile I'd been fiddling with for some time and dazcole's suggestion of using buttercream completed the puzzle.
JF Strawberry Sweet and TFA Ripe is my current favourite strawberry pairing and works well here to infuse the creams with a bright yet syrupy strawberry.
The overall strawberry profile is lifted by the addition of super sweet.
The butter cream, vienna & VBIC create a nice buttery, slightly gooey cream for the strawberries to blend with.
Sugar cookie v2 + a touch of FA cookie make a nice, light wafer.
The reason i went for v2 here is because v1 is too buttery, interferes with the crunchy wafer quality I was after.
The v2 stays nicely in the background and the touch of FA cookie adds some crispness and texture the six.
You absolutely can substitute sugar cookie v1, the steep is just longer to get a similar effect.
I do find JF strawberry is at it's best when steeped a few days, but it's still a really good shake & vape.
After some time the sugar cookie v2 will start to contribute more to the wafer as well.
I started trying this one out January of 2016, a recent forum post reminded me to go back to a bottle that's been steeping a few months.
It's not 100% "duchess reserve" yet but it's on it's way & really damn close.
I added the butter pecan & meringue after a suggestion from Mike Peifer (MrColdOne), so he deserves some of the credit for bringing this recipe even closer to completion.
TFA Vanilla Custard also works well here at 4% instead of the cappella.
This is optional, since people are enjoying the current version, any further changes will be published as a new recipe.
This one really needs a good steep to come together.
Development notes on my blog post here:
One version of a "French dude" remix that I've been working on.
A very sweet, buttery waffle base drizzled with blueberry & maple syrup.
Notes and subs:
JF biscuit can be subbed for INW at the same %. They are close enough to sub and I just prefer the JF in general.
This mix needs to steep, off the bat the biscuit dominates and needs time to calm down.
Super sweet can be upped to 1% for more store-bought sugariness.
French Vanilla Creme can be subbed for TFA VBIC at same %
If you don't have INW waffle just leave it out - it adds some authenticity to the waffle base, and is definitely a worthy inclusion but not 100% necessary.
In a pinch you could sub the INW waffle for FW at 2-3%
Happy new year!
