Three things have prompted me to give readers a bit of an update on the banoffee pie saga I wrote about here a little more than a month ago.
First, I’ve noticed that about thirty percent of the traffic that came to this site since I’ve posted that ‘informative’ anecdote has been as a result of people searching for “banoffee pie” in Google. Second, I made a very successful banoffee pie over the holidays — on the 24th of December to be precise — and the family enjoyed it that evening, and; Third, I’ve finally (as in just this past weekend) posted the pictures from the holiday season and thus now have a photograph of the aforementioned banoffee pie for everyone to see (and presumably drool over.)
Behold! Banoffee revealed:
You may notice that this particular recipe is about two-thirds by volume of whipped cream. You may also notice that we skipped the sprinkling of instant coffee that was meant to garnish the top. You may also notice that no one seemed to mind. All in, it was really good. Delicious, I’d argue. (Though, one should always be skeptical when the chef reviews his own cooking!) And, most definitely, one of the highlights of my holidays.
We’ve since been back to the Superstore to buy three more jars of the secret ingredient, thus ensuring a regular hit of banoffee goodness over the coming year. Now THAT’S a happy new year.
