Your ulitmate Vanilla dessert?

We talk about chocolate a lot, maybe too much.

But what about it's kissing cousin, Vanilla?

What's your favorite or ultimate Vanilla dessert?

Mine? Madagascar Vanilla bean ice cream.

So let's hear it. Do you have a favorite Vanilla-centric dessert?

  1. Creme brulee, or the killer recipe for flan in the special Spain issue of Bon Appetit years ago.

    1. I love a good creme brulee, flan, panna cotta or even a very vanilla-y cheesecake, but I think my absolute favorite is probably a good old vanilla milkshake (made with high-quality ice cream plus a shot of good vanilla extract!).

      1. Whipped Cream! ... peaches optional, but welcome!

        1. I love basic bread pudding with no sauce. When people add chocolate, berries, nuts, etc., that ruins a perfect dessert for me.

          1. Creme Anglaise and just about anything.
