Banofee Pie

I know, it has been quite a while... I do have some recipes to share. Just that I am too occupied with my homepage. Will make an appoint to update more frequent ;-)

OK, this is my good friend's signature treat especially whenever we have a pot luck do. Now, this has also become a favourite of mine for a simple yet scrumptiously sinful choice of a dessert. The recipe is from Nestle. Give it a try as you won't regret it except for the guilt of your calories building up ;-)

First, crush 250g digestive biscuits.

Stir in 100g of melted butter.

Press the mixture into a base. I simply used a casserole. It will be good to put a layer of paper on the base first before pressing. This will be handy to lift up when you want to serve it to the guests on a different serving dish.

Place the base in the fridge whilst preparing for the caramel.

In a saucepan, join in 175g butter, 85 g brown sugar & 85g caster sugar.

Under slow fire stir continuously until the butter melted & sugars resolved.

Next pour in 397g sweetened condensed milk & continue stirring.

The caramel is ready when you get this smooth, thick texture.

Spread the caramel over the earlier prepared base.

Let cool in the fridge for 1 - 2 hours.

Before serving, whip lightly 250ml whipping cream.

Arrange sliced bananas on the caramel.

Top with the cream.

Garnish with more sliced bananas & sprinkle cocoa powder.
