I am a sweetened condensed milk lover. I seriously eat it with a spoon. When I see a recipe with sweetened condensed milk in it, I have to try it.
My best friend actually showed this recipe to me, and I had to make it myself. I could not get enough. Not only does it have sweetened condensed milk, it has a graham cracker crust.
Needless to say, this is probably the best dessert ever. I fell in love at first bite. It’s so creamy and delicious. And the best part is, it’s served cold, so it’s perfect for the hot summer (but let’s be honest, I’ll eat it year round).
If you are needing a quick sweet tooth fix, this recipe is perfect for you. You won’t believe how simple it is to make.
why is it called banoffee Pie?
This pie is made with caramel (you could say toffee) and bananas. Combined, they kind of make a new word: “Banoffee.”
It’s extremely delicious and full of sweet flavor. It’s the perfect combination.
what other fruit would be good with this?
I am a huge banana lover, but can only really eat the first half of the banana, then I kind of get a little bit sick of them.
This recipe is also delicious with other fruit as well.
Here are a few we recommend trying:
- Apples (I like gala or granny smith apples, sliced without the skin on).
It is also good with non fruit items such as:
- Oreo Cookies (both chocolate and vanilla)
- Candy Bar Bits (we like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, Hershey with Almonds, Butterfingers candy bars crushed up, etc.).
- Peanuts or nut of choice
- Chocolate Drizzle (you could also use chocolate shell that you put on ice cream).
- Mini Marshmallows
wait to open the can of the sweetened condensed Milk:
I made a giant mistake by checking on the sweetened condensed milk can, shortly after I boiled it.
Burned my hand quite badly. I now recommend waiting about 7-8 hours, if not an entire 24 before opening up the can of sweetened condensed milk.
There is a lot of built up pressure in that bad boy, and it will squirt out a little when you open it. Be sure the can is completely cool before opening it. Even if it is only warm, the caramel could still be hot.
