Banoffee Pie

Banoffee pie is hands down my favourite summer dessert. And, it's super easy to make. The only difficult thing about this recipe is having to wait 3 hours before you can actually dig in to it!




Ingredients:
  1. 50 g melted butter
  2. 150 g digestive biscuits
  3. 1 can of condensed milk
  4. 2 large bananas
  5. 80 g of heavy whipping cream

Method:
  1. Line an 8 inch spring form tin with parchment paper.
  2. In a zip lock bag, put in your digestive biscuits and bash with a rolling pin until you get crumbs. 
  3. Add the biscuit crumbs into a mixing bowl. Add in the melted butter and mix until it resembles wet sand. 
  4. Tip it into your tin and press down firmly until you have an even layer. 
  5. Put it in the fridge for 20 minutes to set. 
  6. To make the toffee, put the sealed can of condensed milk into a saucepan and fill with water, covering the top of the can. Bring this to a boil and then turn the heat down to medium. Cook     this for about two and a half hours. The top of the can should always be submerged in water. Every 20-25 minutes, you will see the level of the water coming down, so just keep pouring some boiling water on top. Leave it to cool completely before you open the can, or it could explode. I usually leave it to cool over night.
  7. Cut the bananas into thin discs and whip the cream. 
  8. Take the tin out of the fridge. Pour the toffee over the biscuit base and spread evenly. Arrange the banana discs on top. Top if off with the  whipped cream. 
  9. Put it in the fridge for 3 hours at least so the pie is set. Then you can release the tin.
