Bananas

Jukes Wine And Food Puddings Banofi Pie

Raw – you are joking! Banoffee pie, the hideous love sprog of sticky toffee pudding and banana ‘pennies’, can only be tamed by the most outrageous of sweet wines – Hungarian Tokaji (although I wouldn’t waste it), Australian liqueur Muscat (this will slow you down, hee hee) and Malmsey Madeira (I might even turn up if this was served). With banana splits, the candied sprinkles, shaky shaky things and ice cream flavours are more dominant than the neutered banana, so watch out on the wine front. I wouldn’t serve wine at a kiddie’s birthday party unless the adults are desperate – in which case I’d head straight for the Aussie liqueur Muscat.
