4.5hr flight from Singapore to Darwin.. 2.5hrs transit before another 4.5hr flight to Sydney.. It feels like my brain is shrivelling from consumption of airport food. Surprisingly jetstars food is decent- I had a ricotta ravioli. Too bad the seats are so bloody uncomfortable hmpf
Banoffee! BANOFFEE! i had a craving for something sweet and with a truckload of cream and didnt particularly feel like eating tiramisu. Banofee is glorious! Bananas, cream, biscuit base and of course oozy caramelly layer of deliciousness!
Say it with me. Ban-off-eeeee. Chant it! Banoffee! BANOFFEE! i had a craving for something sweet and with a truckload of cream and didnt particularly feel like eating tiramisu and so a quick google search for the easiest banoffee recipe i could find from the carnation website here and 2 hours later behold!
mmm THE best dessert in the world! Want some pics to go with that recipe? My method was a little different at the end but hey do whatever floats your boat. ok ready here we go!
To make the banoffee base: process the biscuits until fine crumbs then tip into a bowl. Stir in the melted butter.
Press the mixture into the base and if you want go up the sides of the tin (i didn’t partly becos i wanted less base ratio and also i didn’t think i had enough biscuits). Chill the base while you make the filling.
To make the cheat’s filling place the butter and sugar into a non-stick saucepan over a low heat, stirring until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Add the condensed milk and bring gently to the boil, stirring continuously to make the caramel. As soon as it thickens, remove from the heat. For the dulce de leche recipe click here
Spread the filling over the biscuit base and leave to chill for about 1 hour until firm.
Slice bananas thinly and arrange over filling. i had about 3 layers of bananas becos i like bananas.
Spoon the whipped cream over the bananas, sift a little cocoa powder and tadah!

after our hot chocolate pit-stop everyone left to grab some cheese while me and noods went to hunter valley gardens. the attendant dude told us the gardens would be closed in 30mins and i cheekily asked if we could get a discount on the entry since they were gonna close soon but the dude shook his head and i shrugged brought out my wallet while asking if we’d be able to make it to the storybook gardens in time. he passed us a map and told us itd only take about 7mins to get there and as he went to type on the register he pauses and asks if thats the only part of the garden we were going to. i nod and he smiles and goes ill let you guys thru just dont tell my boss heh thank you super nice garden dude! you saved us 40bux and we were very happy!
storybook garden! i first heard about this garden featuring nursery rhyme characters from jenny so thanks dude!
