Mom’s Recipe: How To Make BANOFFE Recipe, Simple And Easy – Banoffee Pie is a dessert made of United Kingdom origin banana, cream, and sugar. Created by Ian Downing and Nigel Mackenzie of The Hungry Monk Restaurant in Jevington. Developed since the year 1972, Banoffee Pie inspired by American dessert called with Blum’s Coffee Toffee Pie, consisting of soft gumdrops on top of coffee cream.
It turns out that making the Pie fairly easy and not difficult. The ingredients are all there in the kitchen. I also have never make a pie using biscuit to crust. So it’s quite curious also same result. I customize with ingredients that are in the House. Here’s the recipe:
For the base:
- 150g/5½ oz digestive biscuits (about 10)
- 75g/2¾oz butter
For the toffee filling:
- 75g/2¾oz butter
- 75g/2¾oz light muscovado sugar
- 1 x 397g/14oz full-fat condensed milk (see tip)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the topping:
- 300ml/10fl oz double cream
- 3 small just-ripe bananas, sliced
- 50g/1¾oz dark chocolate, melted or cocoa powder
Line the base of a deep 20cm/8in spring form tin with baking paper.
To make the base, crush the biscuits to fine crumbs and melt the butter over a low heat. Pour into a bowl and mix to combine. Spoon into the base of the tin and press down with the back of a spoon until level. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
To make the filling, heat the butter and sugar in a small non-stick saucepan and stir over a low heat until combined. Add the condensed milk and bring to the boil, stirring for 2–3 minutes – do not over-boil or it will become grainy and fudge-like. Add the vanilla and pour into the tin. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Whip the cream in a bowl until soft peaks form.
Arrange the banana slices in neat rounds on top of the toffee. Spoon or pipe the cream on top and level. Set in the fridge for an hour.
Remove from the tin, and zig zag the melted chocolate over the top or dust with cocoa powder.
