Banoffee Pie

This is a recipe shared by one of kusina's reader, Joy C.  I am using photos she submitted for the slideshow.

Thanks to Joy C. for this recipe and the photos!


INGREDIENTS:

1 pack graham crackers (crushed); you can use less  if you want
nuts of your choice (Joy used chopped almonds)
1/2 cup butter, melted
5 or more pieces of ripe bananas, sliced into discs
1-1/2 cup whipping cream (depends on how much you want)
1/4 cup sugar or use more according to your taste, added to whipped cream towards the end of whipping
1 can (pressure-cooked) dulce de leche to serve as toffee
optional: chocolate shavings (you can buy this in small packages in the baking section)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Crush graham crackers either by using a chopped or food processor (best) or placing in a ziploc bag and crushing with rolling pin.

Mix crushed graham, nuts and butter then press onto a springform pan.  Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until the crust hardens.

Pour the dulce de leche/toffee on top then chill again.

Whip the cream and add sugar to taste.

Distribute sliced bananas on top of the toffee then top with the whipped cream.

Garnish with chocolate shavings if desired.

Very nice! Had not heard of Banofee pie, so next time I come across it, I'll remember you and Joy.
Love bananas in everything, I eat them solo mostly!

me too, sharon. Most of the time I end up without any even if I planned to have some to overripe for making banana bread. My kids love them too! And like you, I have not heard of banoffee pie until I saw this photo in Joy's fb photos (prompting me to ask for the recipe).

I discovered these young entrepreneurs at the Big Tent bazaar last Christmas and their banoffee pie was the best! I so love it! Way better than starbucks! I got their website www.tintanspastries.com and they also have a facebook account. Let's support these young kids. I truly recommend their banoffee pie :)
