BANOFFEE PIE done my way!


This is my take on the oh so famous Banoffee Pie.. I replaced the dulce de leche with salted caramel and instead of making a pie, I served them in these cute mug-glasses :-)

Esta es mi versión del tan tan famoso Banoffe Pie .. He sustituido el dulce de leche por caramelo salado y en vez de hacer una empanada, yo los serví en estas lindas tazas de cristal :-)




So easy to make these and serve them up to your guests or simply to enjoy on a romantic night with that special person in your life..

Son muy fácil de hacerlos y servirlos para sus invitados o simplemente para disfrutar de una noche romántica con esa persona especial en su vida ..


SALTED CARAMEL BANOFFEE in Glass Mugs!
para versión en Español clic Aquí!


INGREDIENTS (makes 4)


1st layer:
  • 1 pack of crushed “Marie Biscuits” (or you could use any type of digestive biscuit)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of melted butter


2nd layer:
  • 2 Medium-Large sized bananas: ½ banana/serving)


3rd layer (salted caramel):
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 200ml heavy full cream
  • pinch or 2 of salt (depends how salty you like yours..)


4th layer:
  • 400ml whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence


METHOD:


1st layer:
Combine all the ingredients for this layer and mix well. Spoon 2 heaped tablespoons in each glass and press the mixture down firmly. Leave in the fridge to set.


2nd layer:
Dice the bananas and share them between the 4 servings.


3rd layer:
Heat the sugar on medium high heat until the sugar has melted and it´s a deep amber colour, leave it on the stove but put the heat down and add the cream slowly.. take CARE at this point because it´s very HOT! Let to cool at room temperature and leave to further set/harden in the fridge (tip: make this the night before to ensure a nice thick consistency). When ready add 2 tablespoons on top of your diced banana.


4th layer:
Put your mixing bowl, whisk attachment and cream in the freezer for 15 minutes. Remove and pour the cream into the cold mixing bowl, start beating the cream on medium until it starts to froth, gradually increase the speed, when the cream has reached soft peaks, slowly add your granulated sugar and continue to beat on high until the hard peak stage, quickly add your vanilla and beat on high just until incorporated.. Fill your piping bag with your favourite nozzle and pipe a generous amount on top of the salted caramel sauce. Top with more diced banana, caramel and chocolate sauce! You´re ready to go bananas..lol..sorry for the pun..just had to.. ;-)




As you can see from the photos below these didn´t last too long... :-) They were absolutely divine!!

Como se puede ver en las fotos de abajo no duraron demasiado tiempo ... :-) Estaban absolutamente divinos!



Not sure if you guys saw the cute homemade bunting in the background.. so easy to make and it made a world of difference to my photo setting.. All you need is your favourite colour or patterned paper, some baker´s twine, cord or string, glue and scissors and you ready to go.. 

No estoy segura si vosotros visteis la banderola linda en el fondo .. tan fácil de hacer e hizo una gran diferencia para mi sesión de fotos .. Todo lo que necesita es su color favorito o el modelo de papel, baker's twine o cuerda o cable, pegamento y tijeras y listo para preparar ..


In my last post I mentioned that my next post would be about a "certain" nut and white chocolate but unfortunately I needed to swop the 2 recipes because of logistical reasons.. all I´ll say is you will go NUTS about the next post..hehe

En mi último post he mencionado que el próximo sería sobre "cierta" nuez y chocolate blanco, pero por desgracia yo necesitaba cambiar 2 recetas debido a la logística .. todo lo que diré es que usted se NUTS (loco en inglés) sobre el próximo post .. jeje

    1. Hi this is how a banoffee pie looks like, believe me it´s really good.. it normally has a biscuit crust, sliced bananas and dulce de leche (cooked condensed milk) and topped with whipped cream! http://the-collectiveonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/British-cuisine.jpg
