Banoffee Pie
There is something wonderful about the combination of bananas and caramel. This is a slightly more eco-friendly recipe than the usual “boil a tin for 5 hours” method.

Ingredients
  • 3 or 4 bananas, sliced
  • 200 ml (7 fl oz) thick cream
  • Cocoa powder
For the base
  • 12 Digestive biscuits or Graham crackers or…
  • 75 g (3 fl oz) melted butter
For the caramel
  • 125 g (4 oz) butter
  • 125 g (4 oz) brown sugar
  • 400 g (14 fl oz) tin of sweetened condensed milk
Instructions
  1. Prepare the caramel by melting the butter in a pan and adding the sugar. Heat over a low heat with stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Once the mixture starts to foam, add in the condensed milk. Bring to the boil.
  3. Turn the heat down to simmer and continue to stir for 5 minutes until you have a lovely thick caramel. Turn off the heat and allow to cool.
  4. Prepare the biscuit base by crushing the biscuits finely in a plastic bag.
  5. Place the crumbs in a bowl and add the melted butter. Mix well.
  6. Pour the base mixture into a pie tray and spread evenly. Press well with the back of your hand.
  7. Pour in the cooled caramel and spread evenly over the base. Chill in the ‘fridge for 1½ hours.
  8. Place the sliced bananas in two layers on the caramel. Return to the ‘fridge for a further 30 minutes.
  9. Sprinkle the pie with cocoa powder. Pipe on the cream in blobs (1 blob per banana slice).
  10. Sprinkle with cocoa powder one more time and serve.
Titli's Tips
Don’t let the caramel become too hard before you put it on the biscuit base of it will be difficult to spread without damaging the base.

For an even easier version, use a tin or jar of ready-made caramel!
