Bananas, bananas, bananas

Lot of bananas around this house.

Lots of banana denial. 

So we have been trying out new recipes, and this was our new find today.

Banoffee Pie

  • For the toffee sauce:
  • 1 (405g) tin of condensed milk
  • Base:
  • 300g of digestives or biscuits of your choice
  • 150g of butter, melted
  • 1 (284ml) pot of double cream
  • 4 bananas, sliced

To make the toffee remove the label of the condensed milk and immerse it in boiling water. Boil the tin for 2 - 3 hours. The longer you boil it, the darker and thicker the toffee will be. Make sure that the tin is FULLY immersed in water, otherwise, the tin will explode.

For the base, crush the digestives and mix it with melted butter. Using a pestle or fork, press the digestives onto the pan. Make sure that there are no holes. Chill. Meanwhile, whip the cream until it's stiff.

Arrange a layer of bananas, top with cream. 

Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
