Well, the other day I ate my last roll of Wine Gums. Which made me very sad. So I decided to cheer myself up by making one of my other favorite British foods – Banoffee Pie! It’s basically dulce de leche, bananas, and whipped cream in a graham cracker crust, so it’s super easy and, well, how can you go wrong?!
I’m afraid it’s not much to look at, but it certainly tastes super yummy!
Oh, and though you don’t really need a recipe for this pie, I used Paula Deen’s. I followed her instructions for the dulce de leche (usually, I like to walk on the wild side and just boil it in the can for three hours, but I decided to give her method a try) and I found that after an hour and a half, I didn’t really think it was ready. I let it go for about two hours and I thought it was pretty good. I’m thinking the pie might have been a bit sturdier if I’d let it go for longer – something I might try next time. Oh, yes, there will be a next time!
