SortedFood makes Banoffee Bites, a deconstructed version of a classic (and delicious) English dessert made from bananas and toffee.
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- 1 shot rum
- 1 tin condensed milk
- 1 handful almond flakes
- 50 grams butter
- 150 milliliters double cream
- 4 sheets filo pastry
- 2 bananas
- Boil a saucepan of water and add the unopened tin of condensed milk so that it is submerged. Simmer for 4 hours, until the milk has turned to caramel.
- Dice the bananas into small cubes. Heat a knob of butter to a pan, add the bananas and cinnamon, then fry for a minute. Splash in the rum and cook further until the rum has gone.
- Open the tin of caramel and pour enough into the bananas to just coat.
- Toast the almond flakes in a dry frying pan then roughly chop.
- Lay out the filo pastry and cut out 10 centimeters x 10 centimeters squares. Spoon a tablespoon of the banana mixture into the middle of each square and scatter over some of the flaked almonds.
- Melt the butter in the microwave and brush the pastry before wrapping tightly around the banana, similar to wontons.
- Preheat an oven to 200°C.
- Bake the filo parcels on a lined baking tray for 10 minutes until golden brown.
- Serve with a glug double cream and the leftover caramel as dips.
