Nothing beats a lazy Sunday, even if it does involve a trip to the hospital with an Aussie first thing in the morning…
So this rugby player had to go and get an x-ray on his leg because he couldn’t sleep from the pain, and despite how annoying he is I agreed to make a banoffee pie with him when we got back because I felt so sorry for him. But it was going to have to be a lazy banoffee pie because a) I couldn’t be bothered, and b) I just don’t bake well with other people…
On the plus side however, it meant I didn’t have to bash the buttery biscuit base or mash the bananas – I let him help with all the ‘difficult’ (completely tedious and annoying) bits. We literally just followed the recipe off of a tin of Carnation caramel. Easy as pie (sorry).
And you know what, it was a pretty good pie.
I think he enjoyed it. His monocled and moustached face even censored a bit of this photo for me!
And his leg is better. We can all stop feeling sorry for him now.
250g crushed digestive biscuits
100g butter melted
397g can Carnation Caramel
4 small bananas
300ml double cream
Grated chocolate to sprinkle
23cm loose-bottomed tart tin
Mix the melted butter and biscuit crumbs together in a bowl. Press the crumbs into the base and sides of your tin. Chill for ten minutes.
Spread the caramel over the base.
Mash the bananas (or slice) and place on top of the caramel.
Whip the cream and spoon it over the bananas. Sprinkle with grated chocolate. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
