Banana Pudding Chomeur with Salted Bourbon Caramel from Kitchen Vignettes

Meet Aube the culinary genius behind my new favorite food blog Kitchen Vignettes who just took our Goat’s Milk Caramel (cajeta) to a whole new level of deliciousness in her recipe for Banana Pudding Chomeur

To be perfectly honest, I’d never even heard of a chomeur before (there I go, exposing my total ignorance of Quebecois cuisine – I can’t even figure out how to get the little carrot thingy to go on top of the “o” in chomeur) but it is clear to me now that I have been living only a half life – a sad, tasteless, meaningless, chomeur-less  existence.  My world is a little brighter now with this beautiful recipe in it (developed especially for Fat Toad Farm Cajeta) now I just have to figure out how to make it so I can gobble it and start living a real life.

Thanks, Aube!
