Wow, if there's a banoffi pie better than the one at Hog's Breath I WANT SOME! I tried it for the first time last week and LOVED it. I'm looking for recipes so I can re-create it at home but the only problem I've found is that all the recipes are with raw banana, whereas the Hog's Breath version seemed to be cooked bananas...
