A to Z Challenge Day #2 - Banoffee Pie

On the second day of my Indulgent Food challenge for A to Z it’s going to be Banoffe Pie. Banana + Toffee = Banoffee… isn’t that cool. Now I know you might not like banana as a fruit, but when it is there with a toffee sauce you cannot resist it for long. I absolutely can’t. This month hubby at home is quite happy due to all these indulgences! Check out all my indulgent recipes for the A to Z Challenge.

Let’s quickly get into our Banoffe Pie.

Level: Very Easy     | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cooking Time: 35 mins

All that you need

  1. Digestive Biscuits – 2 packs
  2. Ground Almond – ½ cup
  3. Melted Butter – ¼ cup
  4. Banana – 4 large
  5. Caramel Toffee Sauce – 1 cup [I am using Hershey's because it’s easier]
  6. Whipped Cream – 1 cup
  7. Icing Sugar – ¼ cup
  8. Chocolate shaving – 1 tablespoon
  9. Cocoa powder for dusting

Okay that was easy and not too many ingredients that you need.

Let’s Get Started

1. In a food processor pulse the biscuits to form crumbs. You don’t need it too     fine, if some little chunks are left its okay.

2. In a bowl mix biscuit crumbs, ground almond, melted butter and mix them       together.

3. Take a pie dish/flan dish and transfer the biscuit base in it, press it to form     an even base and put it in a chiller for 15 minutes

[I am using a spring form flan dish for this recipe.]

4. Peel and slice the bananas and arrange them on the biscuit base.

5. Pour the caramel toffee sauce to cover the bananas.


 [If you don’t have a caramel toffee sauce you can create it at home. Take        an unopened can of condensed milk and put it in a pot of boiling water.           Cover with lid and cook it for 2 hours. Take it out after 2 hours and let it        cool, your toffee sauce is done! As simple as that.]

6. In a bowl combine some icing sugar and double cream and whip it till soft peaks are formed.

7. Spread the whipped cream above the banana and toffee layer.

8. Dust some cocoa powder on top and garnish with some chocolate shavings

9. Refrigerate the pie for 20 minutes.

And your Banoffee Pie is ready for you to dig in. Wasn’t that easy?? See it's not even 10 steps!! It’s like the easiest pie recipe that you can try on, no need to bake, no need to cook – now that’s what I call pure indulgence!!!
