Banoffee Pie Recipe (Step by Step Recipe)

Banoffee Pie, an English dessert is one of the best and easiest desserts to make. The delicious blend of rich caramel, banana and cream is simply irresistible. Please try this as I am sure you will all like it.

First make Dulce the Leche


To make Dulce the Leche put the can of condensed milk, unopened, in a large pan, cover with water, bring to boiling point and boil for 3 hours, topping up with boiling water from a kettle as needed. Ensure that the can remains covered in water, as otherwise there is a risk of the can bursting open. Remove and leave to cool completely.

To make biscuit base mix melted butter and powdered biscuit. Line a pie dish with this mixture and keep it in the fridge for some time. (For a crunchy biscuit base you can bake this for 10 minutes at 160C. I always do this :)


Open the cooled can of condensed milk, which will have turned to toffee. Spread this over the layer of biscuit.

Peel and thinly slice the bananas, and arrange in a layer over the toffee



Whip the cream until Stiff.
Spread cream over the banana layer.

Finally decorate with grated chocolate and drizzle with chocolate sauce

OR
Dust with cocoa powder using a sieve.

Now the whole recipe in one place :)



Banoffee Pie
Ingredients:
Condensed Milk-1 can (400gm)
Bananas-3nos, large
Whipped Cream-2 cups
Digestive biscuits/ Marie biscuit-200gms
Butter-100gms
Grated chocolate or Cocoa powder to decorate
Chocolate sauce to drizzle on top (optional)
Method:
  • To make Dulce the Leche (pronounced dulchay the laychay), put the can of condensed milk, unopened, in a large pan, cover with water, bring to boiling point and boil for 3 hours, topping up with boiling water from a kettle as needed. Ensure that the can remains covered in water, as otherwise there is a risk of the can bursting open. Remove and leave to cool completely. You can make this ahead of time or even boil several tins at one go and store the unopened cans in the fridge for several months. This is the traditional way of making Dulce the Leche which I have tired. However, you can see other tried and tested methods of making dulce the leche in Aquadaze's place
  • Mix melted butter and powdered biscuit. Line a pie dish with this mixture and keep it in the fridge for some time. (For a crunchy biscuit base you can bake this for 10 minutes at 160oC. I always do this :).
  • Open the cooled can of condensed milk, which will have turned to toffee. Spread this over the layer of biscuit.
  • Peel and thinly slice the bananas, and arrange in a layer over the toffee.
  • Whip the cream until thick and stiff and spread over the bananas.
  • Finally, decorate with grated chocolate or dust the cocoa powder on top using a sieve. Drizzle with chocolate sauce (optional).
  • Enjoy!!!

  17. Reny- Welcome to my blog and hope to see you often! Yes you can leave the condensed milk can in water on medium low flame...but pls keep an eye on the water level. Whipping cream is best with this pudding and also I never used any other cream for this pudding...You have to chill the pudding...there is no baking except for the biscuit layer and that too completely optional....If you need any more help plese ask me...I will be happy to explain it to you...try this pudding...I am sure you will like it:)...

    1. Hi Namrata,
      Since DDL is very sweet you really don't need to add extra sugar in whipped cream... if you wish you can add just a couple of spoons of sugar

    2. Hi Swapna! I'm a novice in cooking / baking, but I am really tempted to try your recipe because it looks delicious and relatively simple to make :) I was just wondering if there is an alternative / less time consuming method of making the Dulce the Luche?

      1) Could I use an induction cooker instead of a stove? If yes, how long would I have to boil the condensed milk on the induction cooker?
      2) Could I use an oven and what would be the time estimates / test for readiness of the toffee in this case?

      Secondly, is there someway I can make the whipped cream if I don't find it in the market?

      Looking forward to your response! Must also say, I like the way your blog is presented. It has really inspired me to experiment in my kitchen :) Thanks :)

    3. Hi Nikiya,
      Thanks for your kind words....
      1)I never used an induction cooker, so I am not sure about it.

      2)Instead of boiling for 3 hours in a pan, you can use pressure cooker. If using pressure cooker with weight on you only need to boil for 45 minutes. (risk is there, but no one ever reported any blasting of can/cooker :D). I sometimes boil condensed milk can in pressure cooker covered with lid but without weight and it will take 1 1/2 hrs.

      3)You can use oven also to make DDL, check Devid Lebovitz way, http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2005/11/dulce-de-lechec/

      4) You can use Amul cream you get in India in this recipe.
