Ooooh! Sorry but I don't rate this at all! We love Banoffee and we love Eton mess in our house - but no one ate more than a spoonful of this. Far too sickly sweet. Even the kids turned up their noses. I know many comments raved about it, but unfortunately this is one recipe I will not be repeating. :(

Fantastic recipe!
So easy to do. I "poshed it up" by serving it neatly on big plates and piping my guest's names on the rim :)
It got a great reaction for such an easy dish.

I tried this one a while back and found it delicious. I changed it slightly by adding a few chopped dates, but delicious in its original format too!!!
