So after a good bit of sleuthing, I found the famed Bambino Huey dessert once again. It has been sold on and off around the area for short periods of time since Bocconnes closed, and Al DiLiberto (the creator) keeps the dessert under tight wraps...

It turns out, his daughter (in law maybe? At any rate a relative) has a restaurant that still serves this dessert under a new name.

You can find the Bambino Huey at Julians Italian Pizzeria on Bitters and West Ave and the dessert is called a "Hannah's Huey." I ate one yesterday and it is exactly the same as the Bambino Huey I ate over a decade ago!

This revelation has sent shockwaves through my circle of friends and we are all new regulars at the restaurant to get our sweet, sweet, nostalgic fix.

Just thought I'd pass the information along. 😁

Here is the recipe if you want to make it yourself...your call.

Bambino Huey dessert from San Antonio from Bocconnes in San Antonio Tx

“A lovely, sweet treat from the city of brotherly love.”
2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup butter, no substitutions
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, no substitutions
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup evaporated milk
confectioners’ sugar, sifted for the topping after it bakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour and 3 tablespoons sugar.
Cut in 1/3 cup butter until it becomes fine crumbs.
Pat evenly into bottom of an ungreased 9 x 9 pan.
For the filling, cream sugar and butter together.
Add corn syrup and egg until just combined.
Stir in 1 cup flour with the evaporated milk alternately.
Do not mix more that just necessary to mix ingredients together (the batter is supposed to look curdled).
Pour mixture over crust.
Bake for 35 minutes or until the cake is almost firm when you gently shake it.
Cool in pan on wire rack.
Dust cake with sifted confectioners sugar before serving.

Interesting recipe. I'll give it a try. However, it's not Bambino Huey. Found this on another site:

Al DiLiberto - January 28, 2014
The recipes on this site are definitely not for Bambino Huey. I’m the former owner and operator of Bambino Huey Café and Boccone’s restaurant where the dessert was developed.
