Banoffee Pie for Sweet Punch of January

Hello Friends,


I am here after another long gap. But, I am here with a wonderful Banoffee Pie recipe that was picked as this month's Sweet Punch recipe. It is a wonderful English Dessert.


I got to tell you how daunting it looked first and then how really easy it was to make. It was like just assembling everything, if you use pre-made Dulce De Leche. Of course, I chose to make my own Dulce De Leche, but a short-cut way explained very nicely by Aquadaze. She has listed a couple of ways of making it and me being me, I picked the easiest one. Actually, I made it at the last minute and did not have time to do the original authentic way of cooking condensed milk for 3 hours, which I will surely try the next time.


Without further ado, here is the recipe and enjoy the pics that go with it. Sorry, I didn't get a pic where it looks overall or a slice pic, but hope you like these. 


Banoffee Pie
Recipe Resource: Swapna's Cuisine




Ingredients
Dulce De Leche - 1 can (14 oz.) - I made it using Aquadaze's Microwave method.
Digestive Biscuits - 2 cups, Marie or Parle G (like I used), powdered
Butter - 2 tbsps, melted
Banana - 3 medium ones, sliced
Whipped Cream - 2 cups (whip 2 cups of heavy whipping cream with desired amount of sugar, and that should be good enough)
Chocolate sauce or chips or cocoa powder - to drizzle at top for garnishing
Preparation

  • Arrange all items before hand and it will be easy to assemble
  • Mix powdered biscuits with butter and make a nice crusty dough and spread it as a first layer on the pie dish (I chose to bake this @ 350 F for 10 min.)
  • Once the crust is @ room temperature, spread the layer of Dulce De Leche
  • Now, arrange banana slices in any way you want. I added 2 layers of banana
  • Cover the whole thing with desired amount of (or all of) whipped cream.
  • Now, decorate it the way you want. In my house, none of the boys like chocolate, so I just went white with little grated chocolate.

Serving
Cut it into slices and serve it chilled.


That's all for now. Take care till next post.
