No-Bake Banoffee Pie

Monday, 6 August 2012

Hope you had a good weekend. We had a lovely one. We bought new bikes for the Darlings on Saturday and it was my Mum's birthday yesterday. I made a birthday cake for my mum {post will be up this week!} and we went out for a meal with all the family which was lovely.

Well, I've been meaning to post the recipe for this mega easy Banoffee Pie for a while. If I made a list of my top five desserts, Banoffee Pie would definitely be up there. I love desserts made with banana. I made some Banana Cupcakes a while ago and my current favourite is Banana and Chocolate Chip Cake {I'll post the recipe for that soon!} I've made Banoffee Pie a few of times as a midweek dinner dessert as it's so easy as there's no cooking involved. You can literally throw it together in fifteen minutes plus half an hour to chill the base and caramel.


Banoffee Pie

Preparation time 15 minutes
Chilling time 30 minutes
 
250g digestive biscuits
100g butter
397g tin of Carnation Caramel
300ml double cream
3 ripe bananas
Chocolate or flake to decorate

Whizz the digestive biscuits in a food processor until smooth. If you don't have a food processor, put the biscuits in a strong bag and beat them with a rolling pin!

Melt the butter in the microwave for short blasts of 10 seconds until it is melted. Stir in the crushed biscuits with a wooden spoon. Press the mixture into the base and sides of your tin {mine is a 20cm/8" loose bottomed tin}.

Spoon on the caramel and leave to set in the fridge for at least half an hour.

Slice the bananas and place them on top of the caramel. In a large bowl, whip the cream with an electric mixer until it forms soft peaks. Spoon over the banana.

Decorate with some grated chocolate or chocolate flake. I used some Oreo crumbs that I had left over from making my Oreo cupcakes!

There you have it. An uber easy delicious dessert for midweek dinner!

  4. This is exactly how I make mine, only I boil condensed milk to make the caramel. (Never actually tried the cans of caramel to know whether it tastes any different). Sometimes simple is better. I adore banoffee pie and have tried numerous fancier ways of making it but in my opinion none of them can match this method taste wise!
