Brown butter banana bread

The combination of flavours from the banana bread and Lacock’s salted caramel gelato creates a symphony that takes dessert to new heights. The rich and salty overtones of our salted caramel gelato contrast well with the moist and gently sweet notes of banana bread, which give a cosy and familiar basis. Banana bread’s thick, cake-like texture combines with the gelato’s smooth, creamy smoothness to create a wonderful sensation that delights the senses.

The strong, somewhat savoury flavour of the salted caramel is well balanced by the bread’s naturally occurring sweetness from the ripe bananas, preventing the dessert from being too sweet overall.

In addition, there’s an additional element of sensory delight from the different temperatures of the chilly salted caramel gelato and the warm banana bread.

The gooey, melting properties of the gelato are enhanced by the warmth from the freshly baked bread, producing a striking contrast that entices the palate. The marriage of flavours and temperatures that occurs when you take a scoop of the cold, velvety gelato and couple it with a slice of warm banana bread results in a lovely treat that is decadent and fulfilling for any dessert enthusiast.
