  1. Crumble the biscuits into a blender and blitz until you have fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and pulse again to combine.

  2. Spoon the mixture evenly between 8 individual fluted, loose-bottomed tart tins (9cm). Alternatively, make one big Banoffee pie, using a 20cm fluted, loose-bottomed tart tin. Press the mixture in firmly – you can use a teaspoon for this - and refrigerate for at least half an hour.

  3. Spread the caramel over the base of the tarts not quite to the edges. Arrange a layer of bananas on top of the caramel.

  4. Whip the cream until is has just reached soft peaks. Dollop onto the tarts to give a pillowy effect.

  5. Remove the tarts from the tins (see Tip). Poke one banana chip into the centre of each tart and scatter with chocolate shavings.

A lovely easy dessert- I often use 'hob-nob' biscuits for the base which are oatier and crunchier

My 10 year old daughter helped me, so it was very easy for her to do. I agree with previous comments about not using a full tin of caramel. I sprinkled a flake onto mine and it went down a treat.

Substituted digestives for chocolate digestives, but otherwise as recipe. Delicious and so quick and easy. I would make again

Delicious pie and very easy to make. I made it as a large pie rather than individual and it looked great! I only put about half of the required quantity of caramel on and this was more than enough (even though I have a very sweet tooth). Certainly one to make for a dinner party and ideal to make a little in advance to avoid the work later.

Really easy to make though far too sweet for even my sweet tooth. So sweet, I couldn't even finsh mine. Think the problem was the Nestle Caramel, first time I'd ever used it and just too much, in my opinion. Or maybe, I'd put it on too thickly? I've had lots of banoffee pies and yes, they're sweet but usually delicious. Not sure I'd try again but if I did, I'd make my own caramel to my own taste.

And old favourite that never fails to deliver. I could not find the tinned caramel and so I created it the old fashioned way by simmering a tin or condensed milk in boiling water for 1.5 hours. I noticed there was a warning on the tin saying do not boil due to risk of exploding.

This was a great hit, I made it as one big pie, it was really easy to do and tasted lovely, will definitely make it again.

Really easy and quick to make. Tasted delicious. As my son doesn't like banana's i made one with fresh strawberries and added chocolate and fudge chunks to decorate it. This was too as equally delicious and has now been named 'strawoffee pie' by my children. :)

Really easy to make and incredibly tasty. They also look pretty show stopping too. My second attempt I opted for a slightly thicker sliced banana, really made the difference. Overall, pretty delicious. :-)

Does this recipe call for salted or unsalted butter?

Is it possible to freeze a Banoffee pie. Like the sound of all the recipes, but would be far too big for us. Thank you Barbara

Hi Barbara, thanks for getting in touch. This recipe doesn't freeze well, however it will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
