You’ve probably heard of Banoffee Pie, but have you tasted it, or better yet, made it?
The original creation came from The Hungry Monk restaurant in East Sussex, England. I will link to the original recipe below as I always believe in giving the person(s) who first made the dish the credit that they deserve. I made this particular pie to take to a block party (with lots of children) so I omitted the coffee in the cream. It’s so simple, you honestly don’t even need a recipe: a Banoffee (or Banoffi) Pie is essentially a no-bake caramel, banana and (coffee) cream pie!
slightly adapted from the original Hungry Monk recipe
- one pie crust, baked or cookie/biscuit crumbs
- 1 can of condensed milk (do not use evaporated) or caramel flavored condensed milk or dulce de leche
- 1 or 2 firm, but ripe bananas
- lemon juice for bananas
- 8 to 12 oz of heavy whipping cream
