Quick & Easy Banoffee Pie

Quick and Easy, Banoffee Pie is a classic, scrumptious, delicious dessert that you can make at anytime of the week. 4 simple ingredients is all you need!

So technically we’re still on a diet, but sometimes you just need something sweet.

Usually  I would take the time and make my own pastry (not as in a bragging, “oh of course I make my own pastry” kinda way) but because when I was a child, my mum always cooked and baked with me, and her recipe is great! (Not biased obviously)

However before Christmas I found that they had a few offers on in the supermarket, and I bought a tin of caramel for £1, with all intents of making something amazing, and of course it remained in my cupboard.

I have previously made caramel,  it’s easy peasy, you need to slow boil a can of condensed milk for a few hours, making sure that the tin is always covered with water – I know the tin says not to do that just in case explodes – if you let it dry out –  however I’ve done it a few times and it’s so easy…

anyway I’m getting off the point, at the time I thought well for the sake of a £1 it will save me using my gas to boil water for a few hours so it’s more cost-effective.



So I remembered that I had this in my cupboard when I was at the supermarket, so I bought one of those sweet premade pastry cases – again for £1 – and emptied the tin of caramel into it and popped it in the fridge to set.

The rest of it will be easy to do later –  slice up some  bananas and they have them in a pretty pattern on top of the caramel, whip up some cream to put on top, and there you have it – Banoffee Pie!

we’ll see how long this lasts between the two of us – I’m guessing not too long !

with or without chocolate is fine!

Update:

Usually on a ‘traditional’ banoffee pie, you’d shave / grate chocolate on the top, but as I said we are still on a diet, so there’s no real chocolate in the house (sad face) but I found chocolate chips in my baking cupboard … but it didn’t really add to it, and would be fine without!

And no, it didn’t last long, not even long enough to take a proper photo!
