Traditionally we make our scones with buttermilk or regular milk but this recipe uses Greek Yoghurt instead. I was sceptical of course. I thought it would be way too dry and not be able to work into a dough but it worked! The scones were really good.
You can use a caramel drizzle on these if you want to dress them up and they are equally delicious on their own or with a dusting of icing sugar.
I’m not a fan of Banoffee Pie but I was asked to make it by my nephew so I went ahead and found a great, easy and quick recipe and it got lots of thumbs up from the tasters so it’s a keeper! I used the Nestle Carnation Caramel tin which speeds up everything.
I used digestive biscuits for the base because with the combination of banana and caramel, you don’t want the base fighting for attention. Let the stars of the show shine 🙂
If you love Banoffee Pie but don’t have time to make the traditional version, here’s a very quick, very simple, no bake recipe which will fit the bill perfectly and the bonus is they are surprisingly light so you don’t feel very full after one or two 😉
You only need 4 ingredients, some freezer time and a quick 60 seconds in the microwave. What could be easier?!
I should probably apologise for adding this recipe but it’s so good that I think you will actually thank me. Your hips may not, but one piece won’t be that bad *cough*. It’s a delicious nutty caramel layer which sits on a decadent brownie base.
The only thing to watch out here is that you can’t let the caramel burn or it will taste awful. You have to just give it the time it needs without interruption – about 15 minutes – and all will go well. So get a magazine or whatever you need to keep you stirring for the time required.
