The Food Exchange: About a Super British Banoffee Pie {and how I dropped it}

It is ‘Food Exchange’-time again – that means Lucy from lucyabakes sends me a typical English recipe and I send her a typical German recipe – we met through blogging and realized that we both love to bake and that it is quite funny, that she is from England but lives in Germany – and for me it is exactly the other way round.
I am always looking forward to the email where I get told about the recipe for the month. This month we went for an autumnal topic and Lucy sent me a recipe for Banoffee Pie. Great choice!


I have to say it was again a super great recipe – easy and fun to make, perfect for the colder days and with a little twist (at least I have never seen one with crunchy bars before)..

Another great thing about this recipe is that it tells you how to make the caramel cream. I used to eat this sort of caramel cream, known as Dulce de Leche, in Argentina almost on a daily basis and I never dared to make it. Well, it is the easiest thing ever: you basically just boil a can of condensed milk for two hours in a pan…and there you go: proper lovely Dulce de Leche. So often the easy solutions are the best ones.


The recipe that Lucy sent me this time you can find here. I recommend trying it!
What I can’t recommend though is taking the cake in the car, holding it on your lap and kind of forgetting that the cake is there…well, you can imagine what happened: the whole cake went against the car door when the car started to move.
The car, myself and the cake looked outrageous, fully covered in cream. Nevertheless – the main part of the cake was still edible and after a quick cleaning session we really deserved a piece of the left overs. And that is the most important thing.


Thank you Lucy, for another great recipe!

I just had a look at your post as well – it looks delicious. Please all have a look at it here…although you might feel very hungry after looking at those pictures.

And if anyone has an idea about what we could bake next time, please let us know!
