Easiest Banoffee Pie Recipe

So, t’is the Summer and it is time to indulge, I mean when is it ever time not to indulge! I’ve been doing a lot of baking and experimenting this summer and one of my favourite recipes has to be this banoffee pie. It might sound complicated but honestly it’s so easy and fairly quick.

For the base:

  • Digestive biscuits, about 13
  • 100g butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

For the caramel:

  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 100g butter
  • 100g brown sugar
  • Two bananas
  • One pot double cream
  • Dark chocolate

Ingredients might look a bit intimidating because there’s different layers to prepare but it’s really easy. For the base simply mash up the digestive biscuits whatever way you like, you can be creative with this step.. Melt the butter and combine to the mashed biscuits along with two tablespoons of brown sugar. Once fully combined press into the bottom of a round tin and leave to chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. For the caramel, put the butter and sugar on the gas until the sugar has fully dissolved, keep stirring so that the sugar doesn’t burn. Once it’s dissolved add a tin of condensed milk, turn up the heat and stir until fully combined. It should be a light brown colour then pour on top of the biscuit base.Leave in the fridge until it becomes stiff approximately 2 to 3 hours.Slice the bananas as thick or thin as you want and place in a layer on top of the caramel layer. Whip the double cream until stiff peaks form and pipe on top of the banana.You can decorate the pie however you choose, I melted a bit of dark chocolate and drizzled it decoratively on top,you can also choose to place some chopped bananas on top just be creative.

I hope you all try this because it actually is so easy, let me know if you like it. What’s your favourite desert?
