Pistachio & Almond Bars

Pistachio & Almond Bars AThis was not what I planned to make. I was intending to make a pistachio and almond battenberg but somewhere along the way my mind got warped and I split the mix wrong! Not to worry, as these are cute miniatures with all the looks but much more charm. I absolutely love the green tint of the sponge – all natural from the pistachios of course!

Banoffee Tarts

Banoffee Tarts BI’ve never been a fan of banoffee pie (wait, wait) because I find the textures all wrong. It’s all soft and crumbly and airy and mushy and I just don’t get it. What I do get, however, is that bananas and toffee get on like a house on fire. On top of the digestive biscuit pastry sits the pièce de résistance: banana toffee. This stuff just hits the spot, I mean, all the spots. I actually ate a good amount of it on it’s own, but on top of the digestive base and beneath the whipped cream it is divine! One quick note, the caramelised banana slices don’t stay good for too long so if you plan to make this recipe in advance, save caramelising the bananas until you are about to serve.
