CLASSIC BANOFFEE PIE


CLASSIC BANOFFEE PIE
For the base:
100 g butter, melted
250 g digestive biscuits, crushed
For the caramel:
100 g butter
100 g dark brown soft sugar
397 g can Carnation Condensed Milk
For the top:
4 small bananas
300 ml carton whipping cream, lightly whipped
grated chocolate

You will also need…
20 cm loose-bottomed cake tin, greased

Put the biscuit crumbs in your bowl, then tip in the melted butter and mix it all together. Spoon this into the base and press against the bottom and sides – this is the base of the banoffee pie recipe. Chill it for ten minutes.

Melt the butter and sugar into a non-stick saucepan over a low heat, stirring all the time until the sugar has dissolved. Add the condensed milk and bring to a rapid boil for about a minute, stirring all the time for a thick golden caramel. Spread the caramel over the base, cool and then chill for about 1 hour, until firm or until ready to serve.

Carefully lift the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. Slice the bananas; fold half of them into the softly whipped cream and spoon over the base. Decorate with the remaining bananas and finish with the grated chocolate.

Tip:
To get the most out of our banoffee pie recipe, make sure that you really boil the filling for at least 1 minute to be sure it sets to a fantastically tasty squidgy caramel.
