My husband and I are big on food, but especially desserts! Usually I love to make them but occasionally I task Matt with the job if I’m working and won’t have the time to prepare.
We celebrated Christmas early with Matt’s family since they were heading to Australia for Christmas day and Matt decided to take a dessert. I suggested he try making a Banoffee Pie as I knew he would love the flavours and also figured it would probably be a easy recipe.
The pie was a absolute success and so delicious! The most time consuming part is making the caramel but apart from that, it really is super simple and mostly just assembling the various layers!
1 Packet of Malt Biscuits
100g melted butter
1/2 Cup Soft Brown Sugar
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
Plus you’ll need approximately 2-3 bananas, 300ml cream and some chocolate.
For the Base:
Crush the malt biscuits and mix together with the melted butter.
Grease a springform cake or pastry tin and press the biscuit mixture into the tin and put into the freezer to set.
For the Caramel:
Add the brown sugar, butter and vanilla essence into a saucepan.
Melt it down and bring it to the boil, carefully adding the condensed milk and boil (stirring continuously!) until it turns a deep golden brown (about 8 mins). The longer you boil it, the chewier the caramel will be.
Pour into the chilled biscuit base and place in the fridge to cool.
Once the caramel has set, place the sliced banana over the caramel and top with whipped cream and grated chocolate. Matt waited until it was time to be served before doing the banana/cream/chocolate so everything was really fresh.
Enjoy the amazing sugar overload!!!
