One overripe banana and a desire to pop my eGullet image uploading cherry equals...

Banana souffle.

Threw together a base of the pureed banana, rum, grated coconut, cinnamon and a little nutmeg syrup. Wanted the fruit to shine through and as light a texture as possible, so heated the base with a little cornflour to hold it together, rather than using raw yolk, bechemel or gelatin. Folded in one whisked egg white per ramekin and whacked 'em in the oven at 220c. 10 minutes to cook. 1 minute to eat. 30 minutes for mouth to stop burning.

I love to revisit old Cook-off threads. And I can never make anything that resembles an omelet, quiche, souffle or frittata, without thinking of the phrase Eggs, Beaten, with Stuff In Them :biggrin: I think it should be a cookbook!

anyway, I made a pretty good potato tortilla today. The key: cooking the onions and potatoes sloooooowly for a loooooong time.

Damn, that is gorgeous. I somehow never have the patience to cook my potatoes too long when making Spanish Tortillas. How long did you cook them for? In how big a pan with how much oil?

3 medium potatoes, 1 onion, 1 clove of garlic in a regular size frying pan, with about 3 tablespoons of oil, took about 45 minutes cooking very slow. I fried the tortilla in a much smaller frying pan (18 cm) or it would have been too thin.

Resurrecting this thread in order to find a spot for the quiches I baked this evening.  

 

Steamed white onion and broccoli, cheddar cheese and sauteed mushrooms.  Lard pastry.  

 

These will make their way into the freezer for lunches for the rug rat and dinners for my dad.
