My friend Emily made her Banoffee pie for our friends wedding reception with me. It was absolutely delicious and VERY popular at the reception.
Talk about disappearing dessert. I think my dad ate most of it.
So of course…I had to put the recipe on the blog for later. And for you too. 🙂
Thanksgiving, Christmas or other Holidays are great for this pie.
Recipe Notes On Banoffee Pie From Scratch:
This yummy pie is a combination of banana and toffee, hence the name Banoffee. This flavor combination is genius.
It’s a very easy pie to make. It just requires a little bit of time if you make it all from scratch. SO worth it.
Dulce De Leche Caramel Spread:
Mexican style creamy caramel is known in culinary circles as Dulce De Leche.
It’s a Wonderfull sweet layer of caramel in with those sliced ripe bananas.
I went the slower (from scratch) route with homemade dulce de leche.
One can of sweetened condensed milk is all it takes for this pie. Slow cook it to the proper temperature. Over time the milk caramelizes and thickens the milk into a lovely caramel spread.
Our friend Inger share this recipe with us. It certainly is tasty and pours on easily over the bananas. If you have the time it’s worth doing.
If you want to make you own caramel spread make it ahead. Let the sauce cool to slightly warm or room temperature so it is easily speakable.
You can get the easy homemade recipe HERE.
It is certainly easier to buy couple of cans from the store. And it takes no time at all. Just open and spread it on. If it is too thick 30 seconds in the microwave, (microwavable container please), and it will spread easily.
Now make the crust.
The baked graham cracker crust is also very simple to make.
Just grind up some graham crackers, mix it with a stick of melted butter, put it in a pie pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350 F.
PRO TIP: To make this recipe a COMPLETELY no bake refrigerator pie. Just don’t bake the crust.
I have made many no bake graham cracker crusts by replacing the butter with melted coconut oil. Once the coconut oil is chilled you have a very solid refrigerator pie crust.
NOTE: Do NOT use any other oil. Coconut oil goes solid at room temperature. That is why it’s a great choice for pie crusts.
Homemade food Junkie’s No Bake blackberry Cheesecake bars use this method. So easy.
We all know you can use a can of spray on whipped cream or just spread on some cool whip to REALLY simple up this pie. I’ve seen many banoffee pies made like that.
You do you.
I enjoy piping on real whipped cream flavored with a touch of vanilla. I don’t add sweetener to the cream. There is NO need with richly sweet pie.
My design is an easy rose swirl pattern with wilton 2 D tip and a piping bag. Took 2 minutes. Viola. A fancy pie that looks great at any event.
Your friends and family will love you for making this pie. It’s wonderful.
