Chocolate Banana Boomerang Buns - Fruity Buns #2

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Cathy! I really made this, hehehehe.

Last year (I made these buns last year, LOL), I saw Cathy posting some boomerang coffee buns and I thought she wrapped them with a banana. She said I was being imaginative and I thought it would work out.
And after I made the chocolate cream cheese buns, I fell in love with the dough and my mom gave me a bunch of 'velvet' bananas. They're perfect since these bananas are slim and curvy!

I don't have a proper name for these bananas, but they are called as 'hairy banana' 毛蕉 locally. Velvet banana sounds nicer than hairy banana right? These bananas have a skin that feels like velvet, tastes almost similar to the Berangan banana, but sweeter and ligher in texture. The fragrance is also stronger. This is my mom's latest favourite banana. She has a lot of favourite bananas, ahahah!

Besides my mom who loves bananas, my kids are banana fanatics. My Lyanne is the biggest fan among all my kids. Sometimes if one cannot wake her up from her nap, just put a banana near her nose and she'll pop out of bed. She prefers bananas over ice cream and nothing soothes her from her cries better than bananas. Nowadays I don't buy bananas because Lyanne can't stop eating. It's pretty scary. Too much bananas are not too good, anyway, too much of anything is never good. She even has a banana song that she shakes her body to when she eats it. LOL.

Ok back to the buns.

How was it? When I ate it while it was hot, oh my! Soft squishy banana oozing out from a soft chocolate bun. You do the imagination!

But a few hours later, it wasn't as nice anymore. Still not bad, just that it doesn't make you eat with your eyes closed, with that fleeting floating feeling.

Hairy bananas? I have seen these before. Lyanne is so cute, dancing and eating these bananas.

You are very creative using these bananas to make these boomerang buns :D
