What To Do With a Free Day

With Christmas fast approaching, days off are few and far between so, with an entire 24 hours to myself (ok, Dean is here so I’m not entirely alone), I decided to test a new recipe.

Banana Cream Pie with Maple Caramel.

I had read the recipe in the free magazine the (Coles) supermarket make available to their customers and thought, “That looks nice!”

And because I like to try something different for a sweet Christmas treat – see Chocolate Raspberry Ripple, just one example – I decided that, because this cream pie recipe calls for the optional inclusion of whiskey (something Dean deems non-optional) I had best try it first. I’d hate to go to all that trouble for something that doesn’t quite hit the mark.

But I don’t think I need to worry. It was relatively easy to put together and, as I was sampling as I went 🥰 I believe it will pass with flying colours.

Covered in yummy maple caramel and placed in the fridge for enjoying after dinner tonight.

I think my version looks a little rustic and is a little removed from the recipe image, although I know they have top chefs and primo photographers making their images looks heavenly.

The recipe says nothing about chocolate curls and chopped nuts on top like the photo in the magazine and online, but I will be adding them. It’s a dessert after all.

And what’s dessert without chocolate?

Stayed tuned. I’ll post an update after we’ve had a slice tonight.
