Inspired by a photo of one of Annie’s meals taken on her recent mountain getaway, I made a so-called Breakfast Banana Split for Mack.
Annie’s café version was plated in a size-appropriate bowl, topped with plain yogurt, granola, and a multitude of fresh blackberries, blueberries and raspberries for bold splashes of colour. The fruit in our version was limited to the latter, picked up the day before at the City Centre Market, and the strawberry yogurt we had in the fridge. Mack had made granola the night prior, using a modified version of Alton Brown’s recipe (we omitted all of the nuts), which made my job easy – assembly only.
Mack claims the banana made the dish, though I think it was the sweet and crunchy granola that elevated a very basic fruit and yogurt starter. Layered in glasses, a fruit, yogurt and granola parfait would make a great brunch selection that can be made the evening before and refrigerated until the start of the meal.
