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 banoffee pie. Chill until ready to serve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really easy and Super delicious I was trying to find a way to make banoffee pie without having to boil the can which I heard was dangerous. I found this recipe and was delighted with the results. The resulting banoffee pie was absolutely delicious. The caramel was plentiful and decadent. The recipe was so easy I'm worried I'll have to make it again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family favourite I tried this a few years ago, following the recipe on the tin, and was delighted with how well it turned out. I’ve since made it many times for family & friends celebrations - today I made it for my son’s Lockdown 21st birthday tea, it’s his favourite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! I made this last weekend for my boyfriends birthday. Only change I made was to add icing sugar to the whipped cream to make it a bit thicker/sweeter. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect! Would recommend and will definitely make again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy peasy! Ok so I’ve got to admit I burnt my first batch of brown sugar and butter. I tried to dissolve all the sugar and it just went from smooth to smoking in seconds haha. On second attempt I just melted it and then stirred until it started to boil. I then added the condensed milk and stirred like crazy with the heat up at medium. I was worried because I could still see wee bits of brown sugar but they soon dissolved and I was left with a lovely smooth caramel sauce! So you don’t need to melt your sugar and butter until all grains are gone. Super chuffed! And would of been very quick had I not smoked the kitchen out on first attempt haha.
