Banoffee Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 can of condensed milk, sweetened, approx. 400 ml.
  • 250g digestive biscuits
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 4 bananas
  • 280ml whipped cream Cocoa powder, optional

Method

Boil the unopened condensed milk can in water for a good 2 hours.

Make sure that the can is always fully covered with water, or else it may explode! Under no circumstances should the can be opened before or during boiling. Afterwards, let the can cool down completely before opening.

Crumble the biscuits (using a freezer bag and rolling pin) and mix the crumbs well with the melted butter. Arrange the biscuit mixture on a large plate/flat dish or similar and press it down to form a base (approx. 0.5 – 1cm thick). The base needs to set in the fridge for about 1 hour.

When the base is firm, spread the toffee (the contents of the cooked condensed milk can) on top, then the peeled and sliced bananas. Finish with the whipped cream, slightly sweetened if desired. Dust with sieved cocoa powder. It tastes better if the pie rests for a few hours.

Text read by Mary Peters

Ingredients

  • 1 honeydew melon
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 130 ml raspberry syrup
  • 500 ml apple juice
  • 1 bottle of sparkling mineral water
  • 1 tea bag (mallow tea)

Method

Chill the apple juice and sparkling mineral water!

Put the teabag in a pot and pour approx. 150 ml of boiling water over it and let it steep for 5 minutes. Remove the bag and allow the tea to cool.

Cut the honeydew melon in half and remove the seeds. If possible, use a melon scoop to cut small balls out of the flesh and fill them into a punch bowl. If you don’t have a melon scoop, cut the melon into small, bite-sized cubes.

Pour the chilled apple juice, lemon juice, raspberry syrup and mallow tea over the melon balls and stir very gently. Then fill an ice cube tray with the punch liquid and freeze.

Close the punch bowl tightly and chill for 1 to 2 hours. Before serving, fill the punch with well-chilled mineral water and add the ice cubes.

Low carp wraps

Text read by Mary Peters

Ingredients

For the dough:

3 eggs
25 ml olive oil
125 g mozzarella
a little pepper
½ tsp salt
herbs to taste.

For the topping:

200 g spread (paprika & chilli peppers)
16 slices of cold cuts, cut very thin
4 leaves iceberg lettuce or leaf lettuce
some paprika powder, sweet, smoked

Method

Preheat the oven to 175 °c.  Line a baking tray with baking paper.

To make the dough, mix the eggs and olive oil in a tall bowl. Cut the mozzarella into small pieces and add. Blend everything very finely with a hand blender. There should be no lumps left. Add salt and pepper and, if you wish, very finely chopped herbs (e.g., basil, parsley, herbs de Provence, but also carrot herb or kohlrabi or Romanesco leaves).

Immediately pour onto the baking tray and spread the mixture very thinly all over the tray. Place in the oven and after about 4 minutes, poke holes in the pastry sheet with a fork (the pastry will curl over time). Repeat after 2 minutes if necessary (where it bulges). Bake for a total of 8 minutes.

Remove the tray, cut the pastry sheet into 4 pieces and leave the individual pieces to cool on a rack, this takes about 5 minutes.

Then cover the surface with your spread. Cream cheese also works. Place 4 thin slices of cold cuts evenly on each. Wash the lettuce leaf, pat dry well and place on top of the sausage slices. Season with paprika and roll. Other options are ham and cheese, vegetarian, chicken strips, paprika, tofu, mayonnaise, sour cream etc. There are no limits to your imagination. The dough pieces keep for about 4 days when stored in the fridge.
