Banoffee pie! Everybody loves it!
Banana and toffee(dulce de leche) and cream, what a great flavor.
What a great creation!!
This pie is originally from East Sussex England.
The Hungry Monk is the name of the restaurant where this amazing pie was born.
I wish I had visited this restaurant while I was in England!!
The toffee is often made with tined condensed milk.
You just need to boil unopened tin of condensed milk for about 3hours.
And wow! It becomes perfect toffee!
So easy right?
But this time, I couldn’t find the tin!! I went to several super markets but couldn’t find it.
So I decided to make it my own, much easier and faster than going to supermarkets with my kids (you know what I mean mamas?lol).
And that was actually much easier than I thought. Also it took maybe shorter than boiling tins.
But you just have to be careful not to burn it. You have to stand there and stir it often.
If you are patient person, it is great to make your own.
Having said that, I would probably stick to tin one though haha! The tin one does taste good anyway!
If you want to try your own, I used Jamie Oliver’s method but not goat milk.
We don’t really have toffee in Japan so I had never had it until I went to England.
And immediately I was hooked. I mean it is like caramel right?
Oh yes, I just came up with new recipe idea while I was writing about it. hahaha
I hope it works!!
But for now, enjoy this classic banoffee pie!!
There are 4 layers but all of it are so easy to make(I mean one of them is sliced banana lol), so don’t be afraid!
I hope you all enjoy it!!
