Default Regional Desserts!!!

Mine is New Orleans bread pudding

When I go on my cruise I look forward to ordering key lime pie

Growing up in upstate New York, in the summer I would ride my bike to the Dairy Queen and have strawberry shortcake

I was born and raised in New England and we had Indian Pudding that my Mother made. I have never seen it in any other region that I have been to.
My mother also made bread pudding a lot too as do I still.

I always liked the Maine blueberry pies.

In Connecticut I used to buy Table Talk pies. I liked the apple, pineapple, lemon and cherry. Thy were all excellent
In this are it's Key lime pie.

I remember eating some peanut butter pies in Pennsylvania that were quite delicious.

When I am in Portugal my favorite dessert is ( pastel de nata ).

Custard - much richer than ice cream and very popular in the Midwest, especially Milwaukee and Wisconsin....here in SE Wisconsin we have Kopp's Leon's, Gilley's and many more.......it is not summer if you don't have a custard!

Cherry Capital of the World, Traverse City, Michigan, is 70 miles from here. There is cherry EVERYTHING around here - great things!

Also, Michigan blueberry pie, or Michigan apple pies are very popular.

I'm still fairly new to this area of Nova Scotia, but it seems a local public favorite is Deep Fried Mars Bars! I've tried it, and it is certainly good!

Banana Pudding is popular in north Alabama, or as it is called 'nanner puddin'. Sugar overload with some banana slices, but damned good.

Growing up in the Hudson Valley of NY it was all about the apples for dessert. Lots of apple orchards. Apple pie, using Macintosh apples was locally popular, and this is contrary to many recipes one can find. And please, no cheddar cheese with the pie. Either by itself or with vanilla ice cream.

Dave,
I never thought I would like "nanner pudding" until I had it and Johnny Ray's BBQ in Birmingham. It was good stuff.

Take care,
Mike

Geesh, I can identify with most of the above! Matter of fact, I am fixing a "nanner pudding" today after I pick up some vanilla wafers on the way home from Church.

When I was a child we used to vacation every year at Fife Lake, just a short drive from Taverse City. Even back in the early fifties I clearly remember the Cherry Festival, as if it were last year. Back then one of the traditions was that if you didn't eat cherries, you were supposed to be sent to the local to jail and required to eat an entire cherry pie. I always pleaded with my mother to allow me to be locked up! To this day my all time favorite is homemade cherry pie.

My wife was literally famous in this area for her New York style cheesecake which she was encouraged to bake for a couple of high end restaurants, an offer she refused because baking them was too much trouble. She always wanted the recipe to die with her but six months following her death I happened across it. Being a New York Italian, she ensured that I lived in abject fear so I've yet to try to make it.

I also remember the custard of the Midwest as I was born in Indianapolis. Down here in upper East Tennessee, one of the traditions is boiled custard that I absolutely adore (the homemade as opposed to the commercial variety which is sold as a type of egg nog over the Holidays).

In deference to the Mid Hudson Valley where I spent almost 30 years of my life, my favorite was also Apple Pie as made by my mother. She was always well known for her pie crust which consisted of just flour, Crisco (the original type which they no longer make), milk and salt. Despite the simplicity, no one ever was able to duplicate it, even my late sister who was one heck of a cook in her own right.

I think my weight will increase by about ten pounds after reading this thread.

My wife did not grow up in the Hudson Valley but she had a cousin who was Mayor of a town in the area and sent most of every summer there during her childhood .She knows the names of every apple that probably exists.

For my money you can't beat a Northern Spy apple. Great flavor and texture. Best eaten raw.

Regional desserts yummy. Well my mom is from Hawaii and my dad is from Portugal. So I grew up with Hawaiian haupia, malasadas (from Portugal and bought over to the islands) and pasteis de nata comes from Portugal and is served during Christmas time. There is no California dessert that I know of. We have a lot of fresh fruit so fruit pies are all over the place here.

Haupia is unique I think it came to Hawaii from Japan but I'm not sure. It is a coconut pudding. They are cut into squares and are served at luaus.

Malasadas are similar to a Beignets it's Portuguese not French and is a yeast risen doughnut dipped in sugar or sometimes cinnamon and sugar.

Pasteis de nata are custard tarts. I use whole vanilla bean in my custard it's more expensive but worth every penny. That vanilla brings the favor. I also use puff pastry and the crust is light and flaky.

Oh maybe California is known for Fruit basket cake. Do you guys have these in your area. The bakery tosses every fruit known to man on top of this wonderful cake.

Also I had this bad boy for my birthday this is a mango cake. So yes there is cake under the mango. lol

Yes, kringle from Racine Wisconsin in particular. I order a couple kringle now and then, mostly in the winter since it is such a great dessert for a cold winter day with hot coffee. I have a friend who lives in Racine. He tells me the smells inside the bakeries that make the kringle is amazing.

I started out ordering my Kringle for Christmas but my grandkids loved them so much that now I order during the year too. I would love to visit Racine and a Kringle bakery.

All the mentions of Portugal made me think of the Custard Tarts (don't know them by their official name!). Think I might swing by the Portuguese bakery on the way home and surprise my DH!

Key Lime Pie of course - but I haven't had good ones on a cruise ship - the best are in port.

Does anyone here (other than Donna and Felix) know about Nanaimo Bars? YUMM!

Pasteis de nata but my family just calls then Natas. So so so good. I have an awesome recipe for them since there is no Portuguese bakery out here. Asian Bakeries have something similar.

I never heard of Kringle and I love dessert so that can't stand. Okay seriously you need to mail me some of this right NOW!! I bet that takes 2 hours on the treadmill to work off.

The "Turtle" Kringle is the best. What an explosion of flavor. Yes the cream cheese is good too.

I am lucky to have two Portuguese bakeries in town that make pasteis de nata.

But I am sure that Katlady's are better than the ones from a bakery.

I use whole vanilla bean in made which is expensive but makes the custard so good. When I lived in the bay area I lived right around the corner for a Portuguese bakery. I miss that bakery.
