Step 2 of 4

Classic Banoffee Pie Step 1

Put the crushed biscuits into a bowl with the melted butter. Mix it together thoroughly, then press the mixture into the base and sides of the tin. Chill for 10 minutes.

Has your base turned out too crumbly? Be sure to make sure it's well chilled before you go to the next step - you can chill in the freezer if you're short on time! 

Step 3 of 4

Classic Banoffee Pie

Place 75g butter and sugar into a heavy based, non-stick saucepan over a low heat, stirring all the time until the sugar has dissolved. Add the condensed milk and bring to a rapid boil for about a minute, stirring all the time for a thick golden caramel. Spread the caramel over the base, cool and then chill for 1 hour.

 

 

 

If your caramel's too runny, you probably didn't get it hot enough. The mixture needs to boil for 1 minute until it starts to thicken, but no more or it may catch and go grainy. To avoid it catching or going grainy, you should always use a heavy based, non-stick pan, keep stirring so it doesn't catch and make sure you use a timer!
 

Step 4 of 4

Classic Banoffee Pie

Carefully remove the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. Slice the bananas and place on top of the caramel, top with the softly whipped cream. For the perfect finishing touch, dust with cocoa powder or use grated chocolate to decorate the pie. Chill until ready to serve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe, easy to make, even GF! I had this recipe bookmarked for a while and finally got some caramel condensed milk from Tesco so thought I’d make it. It’s a real easy recipe, even made it gluten free with gf digestives. Only took about an hour as I let the biscuit base chill in the fridge for 45 minutes Incase it was too crumbly! Turned out to be a success and even ate it for breakfast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely delish!!! Went slightly wrong on the ingredients .. supermarket only had evaporated milk which I thought was the same thing ... just ended up boiling the caramel for longer (8-10 mins) until it thickened and was the right colour. Turned out fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy I had made Banoffee Pie lots of times before but not when added sure and butter to the sauce, this recipe was much richer but just as tasty. I would defiantly make this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Had to watch video a couple of times and then only remembered bananas as I was piling on the cream. Sickly - less dark sugar?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tasty tasty pie this pie was delicious apart from the fact that i boiled it for 10 minutes for some reason. i soon realised that when it had cooled in the fridge the caramel had gone rock hard and extremely chewy. i was disapointed but i know where i went wrong having read this recipe . going to give it another go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incomplete recipe instructions At no stage did you mention when to put the sliced bananas in??? On the bottom of the crust or mixed in with the caramel?! Please correct this omission.
