These easy Banoffee English Muffins are a riff on the popular dessert, Banoffee Pie. These individual servings are ideal for brunch, tea time or a quick dessert in a pinch.
Banoffee English Muffins
Do you need a quick and delicious dessert? Or, perhaps you just want something a little different to serve as a sweet for breakfast in place of pancakes, muffins or waffles. English muffins have been a long time favorite choice for a quick pizza crust. I think they're also a stupendous choice to use as a crust for a dessert pizza and enjoyed as a sweet ending to any meal, even breakfast. Especially, when you're not particularly inclined to bake from scratch or simply not in the mood to prepare a more elaborate dessert.
