This Banoffee Pie Recipe is rich and sweet and delicious. The perfect dessert for banana lovers, and a favourite at our house.
Banoffee Pie is very popular in Ireland and after you see it, you’ll know why. It’s the perfect dessert for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
Banoffee pie gets it’s name from a combination of bananas and toffee, yum.
To make the toffee caramel, you start out with a can of sweetened condensed milk. The caramel is made by boiling an UN-OPENED can in water for about 3 hours. Just peel off the can label and submerge in a large pot of water, remember to top up the water every so often to ensure the can remains covered. I’ve heard that the can of condensed milk can explode if the pot runs dry, I’ve never had any trouble with it, but do be careful.
Meanwhile, make a graham cracker crust.
Once the caramel is finished and slightly cooled, slice a few bananas on to the crust and cover with the caramel. Some people use two cans, but I think one is perfect. It might seem a thin layer, but it’s so, so rich that you really don’t want too much filling. On top of the caramel, add a layer of whip cream, whipped with a little sugar and vanilla. To finish it all off sprinkle with a little grated chocolate.
