Banoffee Pie

Oh Emm Gee!  It is late Friday night and I am 3 glasses (generous ones) of Champagne into my evening and well I just realised I had not written tomorrows post!

Soooooooo if I get off topic please forgive my inebriated ramblings! ... wait is that spelt correctly?

I made this as part of Scott aka Chief Crash Test Dummies weekend dessert lineup.  He did ask me ... what the heck is a banoffee pie?  Who has never heard of a banoffee pie here???  Can I ask, have you ever watched the movie Love Actually? No?? well go download or rent it... great movie love the airport bits.


Back to the pie.. a banoffee pie for those who don't know is a pie with bananas, caramel and whipped cream... How can you go wrong?

1 tin caramel top and fill or a tin of condensed milk cooked for 8 hours.
2 to 3 large banana's
500 ml cream, whipped

Blind bake your pastry case until cooked but not burnt.  Allow to cool fully.

Open tin of caramel and spread in pastry case.

Whip cream with a little vanilla and small amount of sugar. You don't want the whole thing to be wayyyyyyyyyyy to sweet.

Slice the old Nana's.

Cram as many slices over the top of ye olde caramel.

Top with whipped cream and chocolate curls/shavings and banana slices.


  1. Yum, I love banoffee pie and surprisingly have never made it. Thanks for sharing with YWF too.

    1. Thanks Vicki, surprisingly I had never eaten it before however knowing my other half's love of banana's and caramel, I knew it would be a hit!

  2. I love Love Actually and the airport bits are my favourite. They always make my eyes leak! This pie looks sensational. I have a friend who makes a wicked banoffee pie and whenever she is asked to bring a plate, I always hope that she brings this! Yours looks sensational. I want to plant my face right into it!

    1. Thanks Sammie, I know what I am doing this weekend and that is sitting down with chocolate and wine to watch a DVD :D
