The Banoffee pic (o Banoffi pic) is an English dessert without cooking very simple to prepare and very greedy: is a cake made from bananas, caramel sauce and whipped cream. Everything rests, as it happens with the NEW YORK CHEESECAKE, on a base of crumbled biscuits mixed with butter. Instead of caramel you can also use toffee, the cream mou or the dulce de leche. In short, anything that is sweet and made from milk or cream and sugar. The very name of the Banoffi cake reflects the ingredients: bananas and toffee. Is’ The classic mouth-watering dessert, as you can see in the VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel (subscribe, it's free).

Banoffee pie and other sweets with bananas

In fact, the Banoffee pie is a very sweet, very rich and caloric. As often happens with English sweets. By the way, you've already tried the HOT CROSS BUNS? And use a fruit, the banana, that rarely enters the desserts in cooking, despite giving the sweets aroma and great softness. For example,, Have you already tried the famous BANANA BREAD, the SOFT STRAWBERRY AND BANANA CAKE oppure i BANANA MUFFINS WITH CINNAMON AND NUTS?

In the original recipe for the base are used the butter biscuits typical of English pastry. I love them, but they are quite fatty and therefore I prefer to use classic Grancereali or rice or Digestive biscuits: Feel free to use the cookies you prefer. The biscuits are then compacted with melted butter and the base left in the fridge to rest and compact. Here you will find my recipe of CARAMEL SAUCE (if you do not want it salty obviously omit the salt), Or you can also use the dulce de leche, both homemade and ready.

Banoffee foot (banana and caramel cake)

Before starting to prepare the Banoffee pie watch the short RECIPE VIDEO on my YouTube channel. First melt the butter and let it cool. Meanwhile crumble the biscuits: You can blend them to get a sandy texture or crush them a little coarser for a more rustic texture. Add the butter and a pinch of salt and stir until well mixed.

I recommend using a hinged mold or with an opening bottom, if you want to unmold the cake before cutting it. Pour the mixture of butter and biscuits into the mold and level it on the bottom and sides with the back of a spoon, pressing well so as to compact it. Put the cake tin in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, so that butter, solidifying, harden the base of the cake.

Meanwhile, whip the cold fresh liquid cream from the refrigerator with icing sugar (I also like to add a little Bourbon vanilla extract) and chop the dark chocolate. When the base of Banoffee pie has solidified, pour caramel sauce, The toffee or dulce de leche and level with a spatula. Cover with bananas cut into slices about half a centimeter thick, making sure that the slices do not overlap each other.

Cover the Banoffee cake with whipped cream. You can use a pastry bag to decorate the cake or a simple spatula, as I did, to create waves on the surface of the cake. Garnish with a little caramel sauce and dark chocolate chips. Store the cake in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Bon appétit!


ADVICE: Banoffee pie can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for a maximum of 2-3 days. Can't freeze.
