When It Comes To Bananas, You Can’t Slime Me – Banoffee Pie

banoffee pie 1

Simple, quick and a total crowd-pleaser, this dessert is nouveau-British classic. I had it once during my time there, and it was enough to convert me from “I-never-eat-raw-bananas” to “I-always-eat-raw-bananas-when-they-are-covered-in-whipped-cream-and-caramel.”

Even though the technique is easy, the pie takes a little time to prepare, as you have to let the caramel chill to set before it can be served. I thought that maybe I didn’t cook my caramel long enough (it didn’t get as brown as I thought it should), but it tasted right enough.

Make sure your layer the bananas and whipped cream just prior to serving (or I did mine an hour before). If you cover the bananas completely with the cream, you shouldn’t have any issues with them turning brown, but I am really sensitive to slime, so I wasn’t taking any chances.

The amount of rave that these received was enough to shut down the review forum. Guys, these got rave reviews. Try it, you’ll like it.

On this Random Tuesday, I have conquered bananas. YOU CAN’T SLIME ME. Celebration is in order.

L

Banoffee Pie

Adapted from Carnation and Saveur

1 box graham crackers, finely ground

2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter, divided

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup brown sugar

3-4 bananas

2 cups (1 pint) heavy whipping cream, cold

chocolate (optional)

Place graham cracker crumbs in a bowl. Melt one stick of butter, then add to the crumbs, stirring until incorporated. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Chill.

Melt the remaining butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the brown sugar and melt over low heat. Add the condensed milk, and bring the mixture to a boil for a few minutes, stirring continuously. The toffee should darken slightly. Pour the filling into the crust. Chill again for at least one hour until the caramel is firm.

Before serving, slice up the bananas and place in a single layer over the toffee. Whip the heavy whipping cream in the bowl of a stand mixer until soft peaks form. Spread this over the banana layer. Garnish with chocolate shavings.

Best served the day it is made.

Perhaps you could even do some pairrings with beverages , ie.,certain flavor teas with what baked treat what with winter and all coming. Pumpkin spiced coffee paired with cinnamon-dusted beuteltorte.

    Being British, I am crazy about Banoffee Pie and have experimented with lots of different flavour combos like Coconut & Nutella. http://thegrumblingbelly.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/coconut-nutella-banoffee-pie/

    Dad–you’re all about the windbeutel. If you make sure we have some heavy whipping cream, I’ll give it a shot sometime.

    Leia–that looks so delicious! I will definitely be trying out some variations.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what
    all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

    This can also help you cash in on goodwill within the market.
    In general, each time a woman plays along with her hair it means she’s interested.
    The Samsung Chromebook’s sturdy feel was definitely
    very persuasive about this point.

    FRAME CONTROL – You MUST control the frame, whatever that may be.
    re watching a You – Tube video or hearing Pandora or
    Spotify, then you definitely might hear some audio breakup.

    I suggest that you change your vegetarian weight loss diet every 2 – 3 days
    to avoid hitting a weight loss plateau. For example, there is
    evidence that patients with Crohn’s disease, which causes inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, can benefit
    from a high-calorie liquid diet. Dependent upon what the
    options are, you can combine fruits and vegetables.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad
    and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I drop a leave a response each time I appreciate
    a article on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s triggered by the passion displayed in the post I looked at.
    And on this article When It Comes To Bananas, You Cant Slime Me – Banoffee Pie | piping dreams.
    I was excited enough to write a thought ;-)
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to
    mind. Could it be just me or does it look like some of
    these responses come across as if they are left by brain dead
    people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up with
    you. Would you make a list every one of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
    or linkedin profile?

    This is why people dont easily share their flags for a collection. The interior Shock-Lock scheme observes the vanes in their place and there is a
    special O-ring over the head’s foot. Make safe bets, and then when you’re absolutely certain,
    beyond a shadow of a doubt, bet big and win big.
