Banoffee Pie = Banana + Toffee

This recipe came highly recommended by my dearest Mama. This is once again a proof that Mama is always right, because besides it being very easy to make, this is absolutely delicious.


Graham pie crust
1 can condensed milk
3 bananas
2 cups of whipping cream plus sugar to sweeten it
Optional shaved chocolate

I used an already made graham cracker pie crust from the market but go ahead and show off your cooking skills and make it from scratch (just don't ask me for a recipe! he,he,he). Take condensed milk and submerge the entire can in a pot of water. Simmer it for two and a half hours. Make sure that there is ALWAYS water on top of the can, otherwise you will have a horrible, disgusting, unthinkable mess all over your kitchen. Once the milk is done with the spa treatment you can keep it in your cupboard for months and months end. I  made two cans at the same time so the other one is still sitting quietly in the pantry patiently awaiting my next Banoffee Pie craving. Having said that, the condensed milk will turn into delicious toffee (see picture). Take the pie crust, fill it with sliced bananas and drizzle toffee all over them. Top it with a hefty amount of whipped cream. Drizzle with left over toffee or top it with shaved chocolate. So simple to make once you have the milk ready! Enjoy!
