All of this industry will lead to new items on the menu. Today I bring to you, and the menu, Banoffee Pie! Hurray! Yum! Double yum!
Do you know Banoffee Pie? If you have not tried this pie before, prepare yourself for falling in love.
Some times the base of Banoffee is graham, sometimes it is pastry. This I can take or leave, because the filling is the most wonderful delight.
Atop whatever is lining the tin is a layer of ripe banana covered with thick, sweet, luxurious caramel. Wow! And then…sweet cream. Ahhhh…..
Welcome lovely Banoffee. Welcome to the table!
Twenty years ago I was on a trip to NYC, at just about the time Haagen Das opened up sundae shops. They had a sundae made with dulche de leche ice cream, sliced bananas and hot carmel. It was one of the best things I had even eaten. A few years later, in England, I was introduced to Banoffee Pie, and was reminded just how great bananas and caramel are together.
Why it took so long to bring it to the CSC table, I can't tell you….but I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do!
