Introduction

It can't get much better than Banoffie Pie for a celebration!

Ingredients

Serves: 8-10

  • 340 shortcrust pastry
  • 1½ tins sweetened condensed milk (13.5oz in each tin)
  • ⅔ bananas (firm)
  • 375 heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon powdered instant coffee
  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
  • freshly ground coffee

Method

Original Banoffie Pie is a community recipe submitted by Kimberleyski and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 (400F, ). Lightly grease a 10in x 1.5in flan tin.
  • Line this with the pastry thinly rolled out. Prick the base all over with a fork and bake blind until crisp. Allow to cool.
  • The secret of this delicious pudding lies in the sweetened condensed milk. Immerse the cans unopened in a deep pan of boiling water. Cover and boil for 3 hours making sure that the pan does not boil dry *(see CAUTION).
  • Remove the tin from the water and allow to cool completely before opening. Inside you will find the soft toffee filling.
  • Whip the cream with the instant coffee and sugar until thick and smooth. Now spread the toffee over the base of the flan.
  • Peel and halve the bananas lenghtways and lay them on the toffee.
  • Finally spoon or pipe on the cream and lightly sprinkle over the freshly ground coffee.
  • *CAUTION It is absolutely vital to top up the pan of boiling water frequently during the cooking of the cans. 3 hours is a long time and if they are allowed to boil dry the cans will explode causing a grave risk to life, limb and kitchen ceilings.
