How is this not already a thing? Bananas and caramel rum – check. Meringue? Well, always a yes let’s be honest. Mix the lot together and you have a Rum banana banoffee meringue pie – absolutely lush, in every single way.
Nothing screams Autumn to me more than the smell of an apple, plum and cinnamon pie cooking in the oven. Not least of which it’s quite the crowd pleaser at a Sunday Roast.
