Banoffee Sundae

Ah... Sunday Dinner. Nothing quite like it. Roast chicken and potatoes and graaaaavy, with  yorkshire puddings and some green stuff, and cranberry sauce. Yum. 

Followed by Banoffee Sundae (for the day that's in it). I found this recipe in Sainsbury's magazine, and thought it looked easy, so the little one and I gave it a go, while the chicken was roasting. 

It's very simple. I seem to be doing a lot of desserts lately... dangerous...

All it is, is some butter (about 40g), brown sugar (125g) and 150 ml double cream. With a pinch of salt, add these to a small pan and bring it to the boil, stirring. Bubble for about 1 minute, then take it off the heat and leave it to cool. 

Once you've eaten your Roast, add a little of this toffee sauce into each of four little glasses (if you have nice posh dessert bowls, all the better. I just have tumblers). Top this with a scoop of (vanilla) ice cream, then add some banana slices and pecan nuts. I didn't have any pecans, so I chopped up a Mars bar here! Maybe you could used crushed digestives or even peanuts. Top with another scoop of ice cream and then drizzle over the rest of the sauce. Sprinkle with some chocolate crumbs (from when you chopped up the Mars).

Delicious. The kids loved it! Well, why wouldn't they...
