Banoffee Pie

Posted on January 26, 2015 by Viji

Constructed from the words banana and toffee, “banoffee” (also spelt banoffi) pie is an english dessert made from banana, toffee (boiled condensed milk) and cream, on a base made from crumbled biscuits and butter. Using ‘dulce de leche’ in place of boiled condensed milk makes this is a marvellous ’emergency’ dessert!

We made two small bases, one with graham crackers and the other with tea biscuits. It was so quick and easy to make these bases and we were totally excited to see how perfect they came out.
