Step 1: You will need……
- 1 400g tin of condensed milk
- 3 large bananas
- 1 pack of chocolate hob-nobs
- 300 ml whipping cream
- 50 g dark chocolate
- 3 tbsp of butter, melted
- 1 large saucepan with lid
- 1 large zip lock bag
- 1 rolling pin
- 1 grater
- 1 9 inch, spring-form cake tin
- 1 spatula
- 1 spoon
- 1 small bowl
- 1 medium bowl
- 1 electric mixer
- 1 knife
- 1 chopping board
Step 2: Caramelize the condensed milk
Fill a saucepan three-quarters of the way with water and place it over a high heat. Once the water boils, put in the can of condensed milk and cover the pan with a lid. Leave it to boil for 2 hours during which time the milk will caramelize.
After 2 hours, carefully remove the tin from the water and leave it to cool.
Step 3: Prepare the biscuit base
Put the biscuits into the zip lock bag, push them into the middle, releasing any air, and seal the bag up. Using the rolling pin, bash the biscuits until finely crushed. Transfer them into the small bowl, pour over the melted butter and stir well.
Step 4: Transfer to cake tin and refrigerate
Pour the crushed biscuit into the cake tin and using a spoon, press it down to create an even base. Put the tin in the fridge and chill for 15 minutes.
Step 5: Prepare the bananas
Peel the bananas, and chop them into thin slices.
Step 6: Add the bananas and toffee topping
Put the banana slices on top of the biscuit and flatten them out. Open the tin of condensed milk, pour it over the top of the bananas and spread it over evenly.
Step 7: Refrigerate
Put the pie into the fridge and leave for 20 minutes.
Step 8: Whip the cream
Pour the cream into the large bowl and using the electric whisk, whip until stiff.
Step 9: Top the banoffee pie with cream
Take the pie out of the fridge, spoon the whipped cream over the top and smooth out evenly.
Step 10: Refrigerate again
Put the banoffee pie back into the fridge and leave to chill for a further 20 minutes.
Step 11: Add chocolate and remove from tin
Take the banoffee pie out of the fridge and finely grate the chocolate over the top. Open the seal of the cake tin, run a knife around the inside and finally, remove the tin completely.
Step 12: Serve
Slice and serve. It is simply delicious on its own or if you're feeling indulgent, try it with an extra splash of cream.
