Banoffee Pie

Hello everyone, I’m sharing my first dessert recipe for this delicious Banoffee Pie. It is one of my favourite desserts. What can beat crispy biscuit topped with banana, caramel and whipped cream. I make my caramel using the traditional method of simmering a can of condensed milk. I find it works every time and makes a rich caramel without having to add in extra brown sugar and butter.

If you are short on time or don’t feel confident making your own caramel then you can always buy a tin of caramel. If you don’t have a rectangular flan tin like I’ve used you can swap it with a 6″ round cake tin.

I wish I had a big slice of this to eat just now! I had my COVID vaccine yesterday and while I’m very grateful to have got it I am feeling a bit under the weather. I’m taking it easy today by writing up all the recipes I have sitting as draft.
