Did it have fruit in it as well!

I might have a fiddle with caramel condensed milk mixed with whipped cream.

Was the trifle something like the one on this link except, as you say, made with banana cake rather than sponge cake!

geldof, have a look above at#5 - it's along exactly the same lines as you are thinking.:-))

Thanks 245sam.Looks very healthy, NOT!
The nuts would add a nice texture.I would probably use some walnuts.

Might be one for the kids to make.

As they say geldof "everything in moderation" and that trifle has to have some health benefits - it has fruit/bananas in it = part of 5+ each day.

Re the nuts.I agree, walnuts would be my choice too, although an even more decadent choice would be to forego the nuts and instead add a sprinkling of grated chocolate or crumbled flake or drinking chocolate.
I'm kind of thinking (and salivating) at the thought of this tifle and the flavour combo' has me also thinking of how similar the flavours would be to those of Banoffee Pie.;-))

i was thinking cream and caramel condensed milk also or normal custard and caramel condensed milk! hmmm might give it a go!

245sam, Oct 2, 11:57pm
Please let us know what you do/did and how it turns out mellboosh.:-))

I would probably use all three! Just to make it extra deliciously disgusting!

Tararua put out a yummy caramel mousse also. I use their chocolate mousse for my chocolate trifle at Xmas. Oh I'm drooling!

mellaboosh, Oct 13, 6:59am

I did one last week as well.
Banana cake base (moistened with a little maple syrup)Sliced bananas then caramel condensed milk mixed with whipped cream. Topped with chopped fresh walnuts.
VERY rich but really nice.

mellaboosh, Oct 13, 7:31am
