Banoffee Pie Recipe








Banoffee pie is a popular English dessert for toffee lovers. Banoffee pie

consists of sweetened condensed milk that is boiled for 3 hours. This process

turns the milk into a toffee with a caramel like consistency. The method of

boiling condensed milk is also known as dulce de leche. Popular in South

America and possibly created in Argentina, dulce de leche is the Spanish phrase

that translates into candy of milk. The condensed milk is poured over bananas.

I prepared the pie with store bought pie crust allowing me to leave my oven

turned off. Even a burner on for 3 hours does not give off too much heat,

making this pie a great summer treat. A traditional Banoffee pie is topped with

whipped cream. I replaced regular whipped cream with a chocolate whipped cream.



Banoffee Pie Recipe

Makes 8 servings


Ingredients:


1 (8 or 9 inch) prepared graham cracker pie crust (store bought or homemade)

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

2 large bananas

2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar

2 tablespoons baking cocoa

1 tablespoon instant chocolate pudding


Directions:


1. Cover the sweetened condensed milk with water in a large sauce pan and boil

on the stovetop for 3 hours. Periodically check it to make sure it is always

covered with water.

2. Allow the can to cool. This can be done ahead of time, even days before. I

boiled it the night before I needed it.

3. Slice the 2 bananas and add to the pie crust.

4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the bananas. The sweetened condensed

milk will have turned into a caramel colored toffee.

5. Chill the pie in the refrigerator while preparing the whipped cream.

6. In a large mixing bowl add the heavy cream, baking cocoa, confectioner's

sugar, and instant pudding.

7. Beat with a hand mixer on high until stiff peaks form.

8. Spread over the pie and chill until ready to serve.


Enjoy and sweeten the soul with chocolate!
