Pie Recipes

It's thought that Banoffee Pie Recipe was made by Ian Dowding and Nigel Mackenzie in 1972. Over time banoffee pie became increasingly popular and is now served worldwide.

Mackenzie owned a restaurant in East Sussex, England called The Hungry Monk and Dowding was the chef. Dowding apparently thought of the idea having seen a united states dish called "Blum's Coffee Toffee Pie" which consisted of smooth toffee topped with coffee flavoured cream. In accordance with Dowding though, this recipe rarely worked - it either didn't set properly or dried "like concrete".

Together they adapted the concept to toffee and bananas making in the word "banoffi", that has now converted into "banoffee" and it is now section of the English language used to describe whatever tastes of banana and toffee. So that they added the new Banoffee Pie with their menu and located it became quite popular that diners would actually request table bookings only when this particular dessert was on the menu. Actually, it became very popular that they simply couldn't remove it from recption menus.

Soon after years or so Dowding claims that other local restaurants begun to combine it with their menu, and then they started to hear rumours that the dessert was being bought from restaurants australia wide and America. In addition, it became highly popular in India during the late 1970's, probably as a result of young backpackers who enlightened the locals with this dish.)
