a melange of recipes, cuisines and food stories and my adventures in the culinary world

Banoffee Cupcakes with a Toffee Drizzle

 

Fusion foods are basically a mix of two different cuisines or ingredients or flavours combined to form one delicious hybrid dish. Fusion foods have taken the food industry by storm! When combined properly fusion foods can bring together the best of two worlds that have never been together before.

I love combining the various elements, flavours and cooking styles of various cuisines. Fusion being the theme of this Monday’s bloghop I brainstormed the various possibilities of fusion of flavours and cuisines. Most of my fusion experiments include giving classic Continental dishes a desi touch by incorporating Indian flavours and ingredients into it like a Gulab Jamun Cheesecake, Thandai Pana Cotta with a rose syrup, Mawa Cupcakes with a Kesar pista malai frosting etc.

 

 

This time I have fused the Classic Banoffee pie flavours with a cupcake. Banoffee pie is a Classic English dessert which is a fabulous combination of banana, toffee and cream in a biscuit or pie crust. I decided to recreate this yummy dessert with a moist banana cupcake, a smooth toffee filling, a whipped cream frosting sprinkled with chocolate sprinkles and a toffee drizzle.
These delicious, gorgeous looking cupcakes go as an entry for the 68 th Foodie Monday Bloghop for the theme Fusion Recipes.
