Banoffee Pie



On Sunday afternoon I can home and in my fridge recognised some ingredients that definetly had not been there in the morning, the baking tin was out and You Tube was on the Ipad in the kitchen. It seemed my younger brother Joshua (never baked in his life) had a sudden urge to bake one of his favourite desserts.... Banoffee Pie. After the shock, I was excited to get stuck in and him (Gordon Ramsey) and me (Ina Green/Barefoot Contessa) made our first ever Pie together and it was something. Joshua/Gordon had found this 'Fresher Foods' video on You Tube and the girl does a brillinat step by step guide of how to make this mouthwatering dessert.

After watching the video, we began. The steps are so easy and in my limited baking experience I have to say it is one of the simplest desserts to make, however it is time consumming best to make it if you have a few hours spare or you can leave it and come back. Our overall outcome was slightly messy (toffee ran a bit over the sides) but absolutly gorgeous Pie, which as a first attempt we were very happy with and will definetly be making again.
