Banoffee Pie Recipe, How To Make Banoffee Pie

banoffee pie

Banoffee pie recipe; banoffee pie is a quick and easy no bake dessert.  Banoffee pie is made with bananas and a rich toffee made from boiled condensed milk and topped with cream. The combination of banana, toffee and cream is heavenly!

Banoffee pie got the name from banana and toffee; the word "banoffee" is used to describe any food or product that tastes or smell of both bananas and toffee, do read more about banoffee pie here

Banoffee pie is one of the easiest no bake desserts and I make this for special occasions; but never got a chance to take pictures. Even before I posted here, I have shared this recipe with many friends and cousins. I wanted to post this for Christmas, but again when I made I could not take pictures.

I badly wanted to take some more pictures, but once the pie was cut my children attacked it as though they were starving for a few is that good, literally melt in the mouth.

Dulce de leche or toffee made from condensed milk is the main ingredient in this pie. You might have heard that condensed milk should be simmered in water and boiled for 3-4 hours to make dulce de leche, but my method used pressure cooker and takes only 10 minutes of heating.

I had shared this method back in 2012 when I made cupcake with dulce de leche, but thought I will again show you how it is done.

Step By Step Method:
Lets make the toffee or dulce de leche
Caution:  Let me warn you though it is very easy to make at home you have to be very careful as the contents inside the tin are also boiling when it is pressure cooked. So, if you try to open it when it is still hot; it can burst because of the pressure inside. Please be careful when making this and pls do not let your children handle it when it is still warm.

Place the condensed milk container (remove plastic wrappings) in a pressure cooker. The tin should be immersed in water; either way. Heat the pressure cooker and once when the steam comes, put the weight on the hob and after the 1st whistle simmer the fire for 10 mins and switch off the flame. Do not open the cooker until it is completely cooled.
My son, loses his control when he sees a condensed milk tin. So to be on the safer side I make dulce de leche at night. Just when the kids are tucked in bed, I make this and switch off the fire. It will cool by itself and will be ready in the morn. (so make this at night if you have naughty greedy kids around).

Powder 250 grms of marie biscuit and add 100 gms of melted butter. Mix it until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

Press this on to a round pie dish with your fingers or the with the end of a glass. Pour all the "toffee" from the condensed milk tin and spread.

Top with thinly sliced bananas, since my kids do not favor raw banana I used only one banana; you can use up to 3 if you like them...just slice and top the over the toffee.

I whipped about 200 ml cream with 2 tbsp powdered sugar (since the toffee is very sweet). Spread this over the bananas and chill the pie for atleast 4 hours.
Just before serving I like to sprinke cocoa powder and then slice and serve. Kids will love this....this is a very rich pie, so pls be a bit easy on it :)

Try this weekend and enjoy "banoffe pie"
