Easiest Banoffee Pie EVER

Seeing as I didn’t get time to bake anything today I thought I’d share an old recipe I’ve made probably far too many times in the past. It literally takes less than twenty minutes to make, doesn’t require cooking, and can be eaten the second it’s complete (or earlier even!)

Like with the base of my cheesecake, I like to experiment with the base of this pie, using different biscuits to give a subtle change in taste.

For this one, I used chocolate digestive biscuits, and crushed them until they were fine crumbs

As with a cheesecake base, the crumbs are mixed with butter and pressed into the base

I didn’t get a photo of the next stage (didn’t think I’d ever be using them!) but next arrange the sliced bananas across the entire base, and top off with the whipped cream.

Didn't even get a photo of the finished piece before my friends got to it!

The pie can be decorated in many ways, with sprinkles to give a fun colorful edge, just a few bananas or a sprinkle of chocolate shavings to give a slightly more sophisticated look. Prepare not too long before serving or else the bananas will start to turn brown 😦

And thats all there is to it! Let me know how your one goes! 🙂
