You know your mama told you never to play with your food? Well, if I had always listened, this banoffee crumble recipe would never have come into being!
Find two beautiful dishes that are total winners in their own right. Put them together as variation or fusion of the two. Eh voila! You’ve just created something new and just as mind-blowing as the original two creations were!
Banoffee pie. There’s something about the combination of bananas, caramel and the biscuit crust that makes my heart sing. Or perhaps its the sugar. Who knows!
And crumble. Any crumble: apple, rhubarb, mixed berries, stone fruit, basic, vegan, nutty. Just crumble! Crunchy, biscuity, homely and cosy: this is definitely one that makes me feel warm and fuzzy every time I enjoy it.
Putting the two together… For me, it’s like the thrill of fireworks on bonfire night! Just listen out for the many “oohs” and “aaaahs” and “woahs”… Such fun! 🙂
I’ll be honest through: I was really skeptical that it would work! I thought it would be too sweet, too soft and soggy, and just one big hot mess.
I’ll tell you what, this did not disappoint for one moment!
The soft fruit, sweet caramel, and the biscuity (is that even a word? Well, it is now!) topping with just a little hint of nutmeg just go together like fish and chips or bacon and maple syrup! A little slice of cosy, sweet, fresh-from-the-oven banana-y heaven!
Oh, and as an added bonus: it will literally take you minutes to put this together. The hardest thing with this recipe is waiting for it to bake. And waiting a little longer for it to cool.
Anyways, my banoffee crumble is calling me.
Happy baking, friends!
