Method

  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.

I've made this several times when having friends over. Its a winner. Can never find the banana chips though - does anyone know where I can get them, or how to make them myself?

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.

Thanks for your question. You can usually find them in large supermarkets in the baking and dried fruit/ nuts section as well as in high street health food shops. Hope that helps!

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.
