I’m not sure what it was that inspired me to make banoffee pie today, maybe it was learning that my favourite street food truck is selling up and moving on, or just a craving for a sweet desert that could just make my day…. or any excuse to have one of my favourite desserts: Banoffee pie. (it may likely definitely be kind of the latter *grin*)
- 150g digestive biscuits, ground finely
- 250ml whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- 2 ripe banana, slices
- caramel sauce
First make caramel sauce, as per instructions here – this will take about 30 minutes of your time. Then grind the digestive biscuits fine, by tossing them in a food processor and blitzing them for half a minute. Set aside both the caramel sauce and the biscuits. Slice your banana in slices of preference, and set aside.
Whip your whipping cream till thoroughly whipped. I like to flip the cup upside down, if the cream stays up, it’s whipped 🙂
Take out your serving glasses, and prepare for layering:
First a layer of ground biscuits and a spoonful of yummy gooey caramel sauce,
Followed by yummy banana,
Add in some more biscuit for extra sneaky crunch
Top this all off with whipped cream,
Finish with extra slice of banana and some extra caramel sauce
I’ve left mine in the fridge to keep cool before serving… enjoy!
