Notes

  • You'll need a 9-inch pie dish or cake pan to make this recipe.
  • You can blitz the cookies in a food processor to get fine crumbs, or pop them in a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  • The crust should be just lightly browned, don't overtake it or it'll be too hard.
  • Make sure to let the crust cool completely before filling.
  • You must use dulce de leche or make your own by heating up sweetened condensed milk. Don't be tempted to use caramel sauce because it won't set properly in the fridge and will be too runny.
  • You don't need to be neat when adding the whipped cream on top it's best to just dollop it on and make sure it's covering the filling underneath. It should be pillowy and rustic looking.
  • Make sure the bananas are completely covered in the filling to stop them from turning brown.
  • If your bananas are already browning too quickly you can squeeze a very small amount of lemon juice on top to stop it but don't go crazy we don't want to taste the lemon flavor.
  • Let the banoffee pie chill in the fridge to firm up slightly otherwise, it'll be a little tricky to cut into slices.
  • I like to garnish this pie with shaved chocolate. If you haven't made chocolate shavings before it's quite easy. Use a sharp knife to scrape thin pieces from a bar or block of chocolate then sprinkle them over the pie.
  • Looking for more garnish ideas? why not try sprinkling over some nuts such as hazelnuts or peanuts, slices of banana, or more toffee bits.
  • When cutting into the pie you won't get a perfect cut like regular pies since the filling is soft.
  • Storage - the pie will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
  • Freezing - the crust can be frozen for up to 3 months but I don't recommend freezing the prepared pie.
