The weather is getting colder, the darkness is creeping upon us and I instinctively want to crawl under a blanket and – EAT! Preferably something sweet. Check this out!
Banoffee pie was originally a British toffee pie, yummy, but then someone came up with the brilliant idea of putting bananas on top of it! I admit that it’s very sweet, but I think we all deserve something sweet and comforting once in a while. Even on a Tuesday.
Ingredients (Serves 6–8)
200g digestive cookies
1 can á 397g condensed milk (dulce de leche)
2 ½dl full cream
50g dark chocolate
A pinch of sea salt
A handfull of almonds and hazelnuts (can be excluded)
Crush the cookies by mixing them in a food processor or putting them in a plastic bag and smash them with a rolling pin or some other kitchen utensil (oh so satisfying after a long day at work). Brown the butter and mix with the cookie crumbles. Press the mixture into a baking tin and put in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Put on your favorite song and dance. After 10 minutes you’re crust will be ready and you can start spreading dulce de leche all over the it. Peal and slice the bananas and put on top of the toffee. Whip the cream until fluffy and put it on top of the bananas. Top this beauty of a cake with some graded chocolate and a dash of sea salt. If you’re into nuts then throw some over it all. Take a spoon and eat directly from the tin – or be more sophisticated and share with your friends and family. Mmmmmmh
