Say it with me. Ban-off-eeeee. Chant it! Banoffee! BANOFFEE! i had a craving for something sweet and with a truckload of cream and didnt particularly feel like eating tiramisu and so a quick google search for the easiest banoffee recipe i could find from the carnation website here and 2 hours later behold!
mmm THE best dessert in the world! Want some pics to go with that recipe? My method was a little different at the end but hey do whatever floats your boat. ok ready here we go!
To make the banoffee base: process the biscuits until fine crumbs then tip into a bowl. Stir in the melted butter.
Press the mixture into the base and if you want go up the sides of the tin (i didn’t partly becos i wanted less base ratio and also i didn’t think i had enough biscuits). Chill the base while you make the filling.
To make the cheat’s filling place the butter and sugar into a non-stick saucepan over a low heat, stirring until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Add the condensed milk and bring gently to the boil, stirring continuously to make the caramel. As soon as it thickens, remove from the heat. For the dulce de leche recipe click here
Spread the filling over the biscuit base and leave to chill for about 1 hour until firm.
Slice bananas thinly and arrange over filling. i had about 3 layers of bananas becos i like bananas.
Spoon the whipped cream over the bananas, sift a little cocoa powder and tadah!
