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 4 out of 5 by from Lovely I absolutely love this recipe. I doubled it and put it in to a clear square dish. Biscuit base was perfectly balanced with the butter; enough to have a firm base but not too soft. Followed the caramel recipe to the T and ended up with a smooth caramel, cut down the amount of dark brown sugar by about 3 spoonfuls and ended up with a gorgeous, rich colour. Apart from the caramel used the Easy Banoffee Pie recipe from Carnationfor a quick fix. For decoration I laid out melted milk chocolate onto a lined baking tray and drizzled some melted white chocolate on for a marbled effect. Let it set and broke into shards. (Picture Below) Most definately recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars with one addition This is a 5-star recipe if you make one addition: add a decent amount of salt to the crust. It makes the other flavours pop and really brings the pie to the next level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I use carnation condensed milk in so many of my recipes. One of my favourites is no churn marshmallow ice cream. It’s out of this world. At Christmas I made Baileys fudge for presents and they went down a treat. All the recipes using condensed milk are easy and fabulous. I hope I wish I could win one of the recipe books. It will be treasured and used for years and left for my granddaughter when I am no longer here. Xxx

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't make this caramel!! I've made caramel several times and it always turned out great, but the condensed milk in this recipe adds a horrendous, horrible taste, its almost impossible to make it golden brown without it becoming grainy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy I had to make a last minute dessert so came straight to your website as there are always great ideas. This was easy to make and very yummy. I had to substitute the sugar for dark brown muscovado which worked really well.
