Mother’s Day is this Sunday! If you’re baking for your Mother, or looking for something the kids can make at home, then these banoffee chocolate tartlets are perfect. They combine dulche de leche, chocolate and bananas on puff pastry. So not just perfect on Mother’s Day, but for any lover of this combination.
Baked puff pastry is already delicious, combine this with homemade dulche de leche, shaved dark chocolate, banana slices and melted butter and it’s perfect. To have more chocolate flavor, add chocolate sauce after baking the tartlets. Dulche de leche and banana bring out each other’s sweetness, add the dark chocolate for some bitterness. The recipe is from the cookbook De zoete bakplaat from Rukmini Iyer, a new cookbook I bought a few weeks ago.
Another Mother’s Day recipe on the blog is the Mother’s Day Cake, with strawberries! These two Valentine’s recipes are also perfect to make for Mother’s Day: Raspberry Butter Cake and Nutella Deviled Strawberries. If you have a mum that loves hazelnuts, make this Praline Spread.
The recipe is good. The only thing I changed was that I didn’t use the whole can of dulche de leche.
