It’s What’s On The Inside That Counts

If you read my previous post….

…then you will know that this weekend was dominated by one event – the family team effort into creating a winning entry for The 2021 Great Bloggers’ Bake Off. It was an epic event, full of drama, but we came up with a champion submission.

Are you ready for Part Two of the saga?

The recipe – the recipe that almost floored us – is on the BBC website:

So now that the base was chilled, we were working on the filling of what was going to become the pièce de résistance of banoffee pies. In honour of the lovely Caramel who invited us to take part in The Great Bloggers’ Bake Off, we gently melted caramel and dark chocolate into an amazing chocolate caramel. Look at that shine!

At this stage we pulled the chilled coconut cream and bourbon biscuit crumb base out of the fridge, and inside we carefully placed a layer of sliced bananas. We used four bananas as the recipe said.

Ten over the top of the bananas we poured the chocolate caramel. Can you see how good this already looks?

So now we had a base and a filling, it went back into the fridge to chill again. The final hurdle, the one that would almost be our undoing was the coconut cream topping.

I will share Part Three of the Nyamake family baking experience in another post – that’s where all the drama took place.

In just over ten days time, Caramel, Gary and Jeanne are hosting The Great Bloggers’ Bake Off. If you would like to take part, send your baking photos to:
