  • Summary

    In this bourbon-spiked baby, homemade génoise (a kind of spongecake) subs for the traditional vanilla wafers, and brown sugar contributes a molasses-like sweetness. Glazed pecans add some crunch to the layers of silky pudding, ripe bananas, and tender cake.

    • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon packed light brown sugar, divided

    • 5 teaspoons bourbon
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon mild honey
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon water
