A Banoffee or Three

Bananas. Cream. Caramel. Toffee.

All variations on a theme, these Banoffee recipes are  delicious and gluten free.

1. Banoffee Pavlovas

The latte coloured brown sugar pavlova is worth the effort.  I do find using a combination of custard and cream a more balanced option.

2. Banoffee Meringue Mess

Easy to assemble and while it looks a mess, the taste makes up for the lack of prettiness.

IngredientsIMG_0840

1/2 cup toffee or caramel dessert sauce (check for gluten free)

2 large bananas, thinly slices

8 pavlova nests, roughly broken

300 ml tub thickened cream, whipped (I prefer dollops of double cream and dollops of custard)

Method

1. Microwaved sauce on high for 10 seconds or until just heated through. Toss banana in sauce to coat.

2. Fold meringue and cream together until just combined.

3. Spoon half the banana mixture between 4 serving glasses/parfait glasses.  Top with half the cream mixture. Repeat layers.
