about 250gms of thick cream

2 tblspns icing sugar

a few drops vanilla essence

Chocolate for the topping (I used flake)

What you do:

BASE
Combine crushed biscuits and melted butter, then press into 23cm pie plate.

Place in fridge to cool. (I dont do this bit lol)

FILLING
Slice banana on top of biscuit mix.

Then add the tin caramel

Combine cream, icing sugar and vanilla essence. Beat until thick and stiff.

Top pie with whipped cream and grated chocolate.

YUM!

  5. Oh, Tania - how could you! This would have to be my one time favourite dessert - and I never make it because noone likes banana in this household! If its on the menu in a restaurant I would have it!
    I will be printing it off for one of my next 'weekends alone ' naughty time'.

    Thanks for the warning too, about aspartame and artificial sweetners. What brands don't use it in yoghurts? The desserts are a once in a while treat but I do eat yoghurt pretty much daily.

  11. yum yum - very similar to one we make over here called 'banoffie pie' {ie mixture of banana & toffee} we use digestive biscuits & just use plain whipped cream on the top, although some use coffee flavoured cream - always a favourite pud! & surprisingly easy to make!
