I had a couple of bits (food items) purchased in NYC last year that I hadn’t yet eaten. Yes you are quite right to gasp in amazement. Especially when put together they make a banoffee pudding.
What kept me away? Well I probably forgot about them for awhile and then there is that healthy eating New Year resolution thing…. The main thing is that I rediscovered them again.
I picked up a Dr Oetker butterscotch pudding mix packet from wholefoods.
I added the mix to a saucepan with 2 cups of hazelnut milk, stirred while heating & turned it off after 1 min boiling. According to the packer you can eat it warm or cold. I have tried both and liked them both :-).
Packet number 2 purchased from wholefoods in NYC is a box of whipped cream. As far as I know there is only spray can cream available in the UK. There use to be a packet one but I can’t find it anywhere. I am not a fan of the spray can, sorry it just doesn’t agree with me…..
The instructions are to tip out content & whisk on high for a minute or two.
This cream is thick & creamy. There are hints of coconut but its not overpower which is probably due to the cashew & almond nuts. So once open & whipped it will last in the fridge for 2 weeks. I think that’s unlikely, it will be consumed long before its best before date!
With no biscuits in the house & not inclination to bake any this pudding starts with banana…
Followed by a scoop or two of cool, thick butterscotch pudding
And then a generous dollop of thick whipped vegan cream
A sprinkle of cocoa powder…
The finishing tough is a banana
Let me present the final banoffee pudding….. May as well enjoy it while it lasts as I am quite sure I can’t pick the ingredients up in the UK! If you have seen any of them would you let me know where? 🙂
There is some surplus to use up. Maybe I will pop out and buy some biscuits. 🙂
