Bananas Foster Bread is perfect for Mardi Gras or anytime time!
Ready for this? Today I’m going for a book review with a Mardi Gras tie in.
Can I do it?
You better believe it!
Let’s start with the book.
Over the weekend, I finished the book, Heartless by Marissa Meyer.
Heartless is a take on Alice in Wonderland. It’s a sort of cross between a retelling, a fractured fairy tale and a prequel. It was actually pretty cool. It kind of established the world of wonderland, while exploring some familiar characters (The Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, etc), while delving a bit deeper into others (the King & Queen of Hearts), and adding a few new characters (Jest & Cath).
Oh, and did I mention that Cath is an aspiring baker? Oh yes, she dreams of sweets with absolutely mouthwatering descriptions of all of her yummy confections.
Yeah, prepare to have some major sweet tooth cravings while reading this book!
A large part of Cath’s musings relate to her lemon tarts (how great do those sound) or lavender macrons. But there’s also mention of pumpkin (so much pumpkin), dark chocolate sea salt truffles, or treacle bourbon pecan pie.
I didn’t make any of those.
