Have some pie

The pie that made the small bakeshop Banapple famous, especially among Quezon City residents: Banoffee. Think banana cream pie but the cream which holds the fresh sliced bananas together is caramel coffee; the cream on top is not just light whipped cream but a thick pastry cream; the cookie crust tastes like it's made of the cookie part of chocolate chip cookies, crushed and mixed with pure butter; then everything generously topped off with shaved dark chocolate. Heavenly! Or devilishly sinful, depending on how you look at it.

Banapple's Banoffee Pie
Wishing you all a new year filled with love and sweetness.

Oh my God.... This might be the best reason in the world ever to move to Manilla! To say I love banoffee is an understatement.
Cat Stevens had a hit many years ago called Banapple Gas. But I don't think it had anything to do with this bakeshop. Never mind.

OMG, that looks delicious. Have you ever considered working as a food critic. Your food descriptions make the mouth water.

It's now close to four in the morning over here and I started to think about whether to make me something to eat - or not...

As you are about six hours ahead in time, I'd like to wish you all already a pleasant start into the new year, filled with love, health and happiness.

I think I gained five pounds just reading about this pie. But that wouldn't stop me from eating it if I ever got the chance!
I hope you and your family have a very Happy New Year.

By now Hilda, Manila is celebrating the New Year! I hope yours is filled with all things good and that you continue to have time to blog and share the art and beauty of your country with the rest of us! More art and less food (I'm going on a diet! LOL).

Here's some old world music to ring in the New Year!

There you go, trying to fatten us up again Hilda. I'm going to lose my girlish figure. Oh wait, I never had one! Thanks for your concern and for commenting while I was away. I do appreciate it.

A truly Happy New Year to you and your family!

I love Banapple, not just their desserts but even their home-made meals! They're all worth your money, even the size of servings! :) They have a new branch in Katipunan - opposite street of the original branch right across Ateneo.
