BANOFFEE PIE IS BETTER THAN ALMOST ANYTHING!!!
When we saw the brilliant rainbow pictured in yesterday's post, the good professor insisted we stop so he could capture it. The Amazing Children were so inspired by the sight that they begged we stop at a place to eat something, anything, please, we are starving! I spotted a little wayside cafe and we trooped in.
The rainbow had led us to a treasure better than a pot of gold. Banoffee pie. Oh, the bliss!
I wish I could tell you where this place is, but like Brigadoon, it's vanished. At least, from my memory. And Northern Ireland is a bit out of the way for us these days. So I need to figure out the recipe. If anyone has a good one, lay it on me.
I think I will try this one first, because the recipe provider says it is easy. I like easy. But I am uneasy that it will not be as good as something harder to make. And the photo they provide does not look like what I recall the pie looking like. I do not like that. My memory is of a pie that looked like the one pictured at the top of this post. But what matters is taste. FF wants pies that taste good. Maybe I should try the one that's pictured (from Gourmet) after I do the easy one.
More about Northern Ireland tomorrow. I have a funny name for that post.
Well, I think it's funny.
Off to carmelize my condensed milk. Wish me luck.
