For those of you who aren’t from the UK, yes, this perfect dessert recipe is “Banoffee Pie,” a slurring of the words banana and toffee. As classically British as 007 and a stiff upper lip, banoffee is a sticky, seductive pie of creamy toffee and slices of sweet banana. Lisa, a longtime Spice Girls fan, wanted to do a little oomph to this already decadent dessert, so she crowned it with a crunchy top layer of graham crackers coated in milk chocolate and toffee bits.
When is a pie not a pie? When it’s little cakes, as in these delicious mini Boston Cream Pies. Like the classic dessert, moist vanilla cake is layered with a creamy pudding filling and topped with a smooth chocolate ganache. This terrific trio of textures and flavors combine to serve up Boston in every bite.
Chocolate lovers unite – this tasty recipe is going to make all your chocolate dreams come true. There’s nothing tiny about these amazingly Mini (4-inches each) Chocolate Pudding Pies – a chocolaty Oreo crust is topped with a smooth and creamy milk chocolate pudding and finished with an amazingly fluffy marshmallow-like meringue. Yes, this decadent dessert is every chocoholics kryptonite!
A day devoted to PEANUTS! What could be better? That’s a rhetorical question…
We LOVE everything about this holiday because there are SO many different recipes using peanuts!
In honour of National Peanut Day, we are celebrating with a super fun and nutty Peanut Butter Party that can be whipped up in a jiffy! From Mr. Peanut to pounds of peanuts in shells, this party is one easy nut to crack.
How do you improve on a classic? Put Chef Lisa on the job. She has expertly created a Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie (think: giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup), layers of chocolate pie crust, creamy peanut butter filling and rich chocolate fudge, and kicked it up a notch with the addition of addictive and easy homemade peanut brittle. This smooth-centered, crunchy-topped Peanut Butter Pie is the perfect pie!
As much as we love pie, no one ever said, “Let them eat pie.” With that in mind, we’ve morphed one of our favorite pies into a killer cake, as is the case with this Key Lime Cake Recipe, a moist and delicious cake that has all the flavors of a Key Lime Pie. This Key Lime Cake hits the perfect balance between sweet and tart, with luscious layers (4 in all!) encased in key lime cream cheese frosting and coated in a graham cracker crumble. This one really takes the cake!
