Cheats Banoffee Pie

Recently we went to dinner with friends, and I took a dessert. I quite like making desserts, and have some great simple recipes that always seem to go down well - literally. I was a bit stuck this time round though – as I had made them all my “usual ones” before, and I did not want to take them the same one again.  I then remembered that when I was in England (way back in 2007) – I learnt to make this super quick and super tasty Banoffee Pie. It’s really simple and is definitely a cheats version, but who’s to know!!!
Here is what you need:
  • 1 x packet of Ginger biscuits (or Hob Nobs)
  • 1 x tin of Instant Caramel Treat (I used the Nestle one)
  • 1 x small tub of cream (you can use double cream – as you are going to whip it to stiff peaks)
  • 3 x large bananas
  • Some butter for melting
For the base – crumb the biscuits and add melted butter until the crumbs stick together when you press them. Stick them in a pie dish and put in the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden up. (I stuck mine in the freezer for about 10 minutes and it was hard).
Next pour out the caramel into a bowl and give a good stir. Once the base has hardened, take out and spread the caramel over it. Then cut the banana into rounds and place all around the dish until the caramel is covered. Whip the cream to stiff peaks (I slightly over whipped mine), and spread on top op the banana. Refrigerate for a few hours and serve.
Pie with Caramel on - sorry I forgot to take one of the base
Banana added

End Result - slightly over whipped cream - but oh well!!!!
A must have for any dinner party, who am I kidding, a must have for every night - its that delicious.
