As it’s getting closer to the festive season I thought I would treat you all to something sweet and delicious like this Banoffee pie.  Whether it’s for friends and family or for a special occasion this recipe is sure to go down a treat.  With absolutely no cooking, this simple, quick and absolutely delightful dessert is the perfect treat. Enjoy!!


Prep time: 20 mins | Cook time 0 mins

Serves: 12


  • 250g digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 397g can of Carnation caramel (or condensed milk)
  • 4 small bananas
  • 300ml carton whipping cream, whipped
  • Grated chocolate, to decorate
  • You will also need 23cm/9 inch round cake tin.


Place the digestive biscuits into a resealable freezer bag.  Using a rolling pin crush the biscuits to crumbs and put them into a bowl with the melted butter. Mix together thoroughly, and then press the mixture into the base and sides of your baking tin. Chill for ten minutes in the freezer. This is the base of your banoffee pie.

Using a spatula or spoon spread the caramel over the base. OR, if you are using condensed milk: Remove the label from the unopened can of condensed milk. Fill a deep medium saucepan with water and bring it to the boil. Carefully place the can in the saucepan, ensuring there’s enough water to completely cover the can at all times (topping up water frequently throughout), leave the saucepan uncovered and simmer for 3 hours, turning the condensed milk into caramel.  (Ensure the can is completely covered with water at all times during cooking) Carefully remove the can from the boiling water; allow it to cool completely before opening and using it.


Slice the bananas and scatter them over the top of the caramel, then put the cream on top and decorate with grated chocolate.   Keep the pie in the fridge until you’re ready to eat it.



Banoffee pie is perfect on its own with a beverage of your choice. Enjoy!!
