Oh the wonders. Oh the glory. Oh the absolute English overindulgence that is banoffee pie. Is it the bananas? Is it the toffee? Whatever makes this dessert the heaven it is, this is one of the most decadent things the little island has produced as a dessert staple over the years. And while it may take about 5 years off your life, every once in awhile, it's totally worth it.
It seems everyone and their British granny have their own version of this, mine comes from a good friend (appropriately English) who served this as dessert for this year's Easter dinner. Stomach already full of pork and bread deliciousness, I thought I would be able to resist the dessert temptation. Alas, I could not and now I'm glad my eyes were bigger than my stomach. It was worth every stomach-busting bite.
