These Deceiving Names!
These Banana Bread Marshmallows are soft, pillowy, and delicious treats with a breathtaking aroma of ripe bananas and spices. It’s like a slice of banana bread in you…coffee!
Well, banana bread in your coffee doesn’t sound very appealing to me. If it does to you, I cannot judge you, we are only humans (But…wait…seriously?)
As you can assume ain’t bread being involved in these marshmallows. It’s just another deceiving name. Like no monkeys or bananas being involved in Monkey bread.
I’ve already had some thoughts regarding this culinary issue. Recently, David has shared a recipe for delicious Italian Cream Cupcakes, and that post reminded me how food names could mislead us.
A coffee cake which doesn’t have any coffee? I don’t get it! Tea cakes or biscuits (Which are a very common thing in some countries including Russia) don’t make sense either. Would you like to say you cannot have a tea cake with coffee or milk or a coffee cake with tea? Count me out.
Next, pumpkin spice latte without any pumpkin (However, last year I found some places adding real pumpkin puree along with spices). Apple pie tea which has nothing to deal with a cake. Seriously, once I bought something called Apple Pie *** which had only cinnamon from all spices being used in a pie.
Banana Bread Marshmallows
On the other hand, I get it. Adding a few additional words to the name might sound and look eye-catching. Banana Bread Marshmallows sound more intriguing rather than just Banana Marshmallows. Also, SEO said this name was too short:)
Besides, these marshmallows are quite damn tasty. Please note that thanks to using banana mash, the marshmallows will have slightly heavier and less airy consistency than any other version. Like a banana bread!
Talking of banana bread, I’ve made it only once, and that was the recipe…David shared. What a coincidence, David!
Anyway, whatever you name these marshmallows, their taste will be great! For a summer version, grill some banana bread and top it with Banana Bread Marshmallows.
P.S. I also need to thank David for this post inspiration. I had been delaying with this recipe for a month cause I didn’t have any ideas for the post:)
