Just as I stated, there's no escape from curd cheese on this blog and this time it's a tribute to the combination coffee-cloves-bananas-almonds. Actually the bananas are the X in this equation, successfully replaced by nectarines, peaches or apricots.
Curd cheese with coffee, clove-flavoured bananas and almond praline
400 g curd cheese (smooth type, paste)
about 1 tsp coffee essence (can be substituted with instant coffee powder)
about 2 1/2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cloves
almond praline (e.g. this)
- Mix curd cheese to taste with instant coffee powder or coffee essence, sugar and vanilla.
- Combine sliced banana, sugar and ground cloves on a skillet. Heat until the sugar has turned into a light caramel around the banana slices. Occasionally stir and turn the slices around.
- Crush the almond praline to little pieces.
- Serve the curd cheese with warm banana slices and crushed praline.
