Banoffee Pie


Weekday Potluck Every Tuesday to Thursday

FTFBadge


My second daughter Klarion turned 22 months on Wednesday and this is a great excuse for me to make another yummy dessert hehe! I was inspired to make this pie because of a request of my High School friend via my personal Facebook account. He requested for it as if he can taste it when I do. I am in New Zealand and he is in Canada and how would he be able to eat it? Haha! 

But the idea of banana pie got into me one day and searched for an easy to make recipe. The combination of caramel and banana is HEAVEN!!! My family loves it. My friend Mika was asking for this recipe. She told me that her boyfriend loves banana pie, so she's really keen to know how to make this. So here it is, the recipe of Banoffee Pie.

INGREDIENTS:

For the Pie Crust:

100 g (3 1/2 oz) melted butter
250 g (9 oz) digestive biscuit

For the Filling:

100 g (3 1/2 oz) melted butter
100 g (3 1/2 oz) dark brown sugar
1 can of 379 g condensed milk

For the Topping: 

2 - 4 small bananas
300 ml  double cream, whipped
grated chocolate

PROCEDURES:

To Make the Crust: 

1. Process the biscuits until fine crumbs then put in a bowl.
2. Stir in the melted butter until well combined.
3. Press the mixture into a pie pan or loose bottom cake tin (I prefer the loose botton cake tin).
4. Chill in the fridge for 30 to 1 hour.

To Make the Filling:

1. Place the butter and the sugar in a saucepan over a low heat until the butter melts and the sugaar dissolves.
2. Add the condensed milk and bring to the boil, stirring continuously to make caramel.
3. Spread the caramel filling over the biscuit base, cool, and leave to chill for 1 hour or until firm.

(Or you could use 1 can of Highlander Caramel in substitute for this filling recipe).

To Serve:

1. Remove the pie from the tin then
2. Slice bananas; put half of the bananas over the caramel then fold the other half into the whipped cream.
3. Spoon over the toffee base.
4. Decorate with remaining bananas and top with grated chocolate.

Share and enjoy with family and friends!!!
