Other things to mention: gluten free. This pie makes me want to run around exclaiming ‘I can’t believe it’s gluten free!’ Here’s the thing: I don’t specifically develop recipes to be with or without certain ingredients. I develop recipes to be delicious. But, it seems everyone and their dog is avoiding gluten these days (no, really–my dogs are gluten-free). I am always looking for recipes that only require a few ingredients. Because I’m always looking for the fastest way to get dessert in my mouth.
Is this level of perfection something you could achieve without an immersion circulator? Of course. Pudding isn’t that hard to make on the stove, but stove-top pudding requires a lot of gradual additions, continuous stirring, and babying to make sure it doesn’t scorch on the bottom. This way is easier, and I am all about ease. You can also infuse the pudding itself with banana peels, which is great, as long as you don’t have a latex allergy. What I’m saying is that banana pudding perfection can be yours, and you don’t even have to stand over a stove, and you should be really happy about it.
