This is that kind of recipe you can make for a celebration and rest assured everybody present on the day will be super impressed and be instantaneously tempted to try it. 🙂
I know it might seem like a lot of work at first glance, but hang with me for a second; if it’s something you’re making for a special occasion, it needs to be pretty, delicious and, of course, perfect! Let’s be honest, you don’t have a gluten-free banana and chocolate ganache pie in front of you that often, do you? So why not treat yourself and your guests by having this beauty for a party?
Get the melted chocolate and brush all over the interior of the pie crust. This is to isolate the crust and to prevent it from getting soaked.
Make a bed of sliced bananas, just enough to cover all the surface.
Pour in the cream cheese filling then the chocolate ganache layer at the top. If you feel the first layer is not firm enough, just pop the pie into the fridge for around 30 minutes to set before adding the chocolate ganache.
Cover all the surface with more sliced bananas. Next, brush over them the lemon juice (this will prevent the bananas from getting darker).
Garnish with whipped cream and some shaved dark chocolate.
This Gluten free Sweet Pastry Crust recipe it’s very handy in the kitchen. You can use it for pies, tarts, and any other thing that you would need a good pastry recipe.
It’s also very soft and easy to handle, which helps you to create different shapes or some nice decorations for your pies using cookie shape cutters. Ah! You can also make a chocolate version, just add some cocoa powder to it and it’s done!
1 cup of coconut flour
½ cup of tapioca starch
200g of unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons of coconut sugar (or any sweetener you like)
a pinch of salt
Add all ingredients in a food processor and put it to work until smooth. Tip: in case you want to make a chocolate version, just add 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder.
Grease a pie plate/tin and, using your fingers, press the mixture into it as evenly as possible.
Use a fork and make small vertical holes throughout the mixture, then pop it into the freezer for 1 hour before baking.
In a pre-heated oven, bake the frozen crust for 10 to 12 minutes at 180C.
Done! Let it cool down completely before adding your preferred filling.
