Recipe for homemade banoffee pie

Ingredients

  • 150g butter
  • 200g digestive biscuits
  • 400g of dulce de leche (found in tins)
  • 3 bananas (ripened)
  • 300ml double cream
  • 1tbsp icing sugar
  • Cocoa powder / grated chocolate(for dusting)

Method

  • Melt the butter in the microwave (10 seconds at a time until melted).
  • Crush the biscuits until they resemble fine crumbs. You can do this by hand or using a food processor.
  • Add the melted butter and biscuits into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Spread the biscuit mixture over the bottom of a round tin, pushing it down with a spoon and covering the entire base.
  • Leave the base of the pie in the fridge to chill for an hour.
  • Remove the dulce de leche from the tin and mix with a spoon or whisk to loosen.
  • Spread this over the base of the pie and made sure this is done evenly by using either a knife or spoon.
  • Thinly slice the bananas and place on top of the dulce de leche layer (making sure it’s all covered).
  • Put it back into the fridge.
  • Whip the cream and icing sugar until it reaches stiff peaks (it should stand on its own). This may take a while and will be made so much easier if done using a hand held whisk!
  • Spoon the cream mixture on top on the bananas and dust with either grated chocolate or cocoa powder!
