Way back when I was 9 years old, we stayed in England for about 9 weeks while my father took some law school courses. I have so many memories of that summer; the castles, the gardens with huge roses, the ancient buildings, the sea air, and of course, the food! The English have wonderful, delectable desserts.
There was a cute little restaurant that had awesome warm blackberry pie with warm, thick rich custard sauce poured over the top. I have been able to easily recreate that recipe with Marie Calendar’s Razzleberry Pie and homemade warm custard.
Another food memory was eating banana fritters at a restaurant near the Southampton Garden Maze. I have attempted to recreate the recipe a few times. Sometimes I sautee the bananas and use a touch of warm maple syrup over them, other times I go for the full fat!
This time I prepared a batter, sliced then dipped the bananas in the batter, then fried them in hot oil. It wasn’t exactly what I remembered, but it was ooooo! so good.
