Guess what I made on Superbowl Sunday?
How fortuitous, since I was planning to take dessert to our friends' house that day. The host and hostess are fans of chocolate and bananas, respectively. Score!
Let me tell you, the recipe for this Tart is tons more involved and complicated than the Nutella Tartine. Still, I was up for the challenge. I. Went. All. The. Wa-a-a-y to try the Chocolate Nutella version described in Dorie's Bonne Idee. That includes the Chocolate Shortbread dough recipe found on page 501. Wow. I remember thinking, "Hope all this works". I'm glad I started right after breakfast! We were expected at our hosts' residence at 4 pm.
|9 Tbsp butter much be ice-cold|
|The food processor creates pea-sizes and oatmeal flakes.|
Add the egg yolk, more processing, and see what happens...
Turns out carmelizing bananas is a little tricky. I can see now why you want to start with firm bananas. I probably overcooked mine but I don't think it was noticeable in the final product.
|I love how "ganache" is the Fancy Nancy word for boiled cream with chocolate and butter!|
