If there is one thing I can never get enough of when I'm baking something, it's guava paste. (You were going to guess that too, weren't you?)
Gotta have more GUAVA! **
If you're not Cuban, you're probably not feeling it and that's O-KAY. I really don't get Jell-O, so we're probably even there. 😉
But I swear, I am constantly daydreaming about ways to get guava into my baked goods. (I also daydream about having a kitchen staff, but that's not important right now. =D)
So I made a fabulous bread pudding that you don't need to pour sauce on because:
1) I caramelized the dish first.
2) I added guava paste to it, which melted into all the nooks and crannies and made it all uber-gooey and rich and absolutely AMAZING.
(**FYI – in reference to the legendary SNL – "I gotta have more cowbell" skit with Christopher Walken.)
NOTE – ADDED 10/16/08: (for Kelly P.) If you can't find guava paste in your neighborhood, you can order it online from Cuban Food Market. If you want some galletas or plantain chips too, I have a link to them over there on the left. If all else fails, you KNOW I'll be willing to buy it at my local Mercado Latino and mail it. =D
