Hello everyone! It’s no secret in my household how much I am in love with bananas. My mom has for years been struggling to get me to eat fruits, I no like fruits! But bananas! That’s a different story. You would never find me saying ‘no’ to bananas and you’ll always find a stash of them on my dining table. Since I started cooking and baking, recipes using bananas were the first ones I searched for. I had made Banana Chocolate cupcakes in the past. And today I am going to share with you yet another delicious recipe – BANOFFEE PIE! Don’t know what that is? Just keep on reading..
So you must have already guessed by now that bananas are a key ingredient in Banoffee Pie. To give you a little history, this dessert was invented by the British and the name is actually derived from ‘banana’ and ‘coffee’. Ever since I tried this dessert back in India a couple of years back, this became my number one dessert! My all-time favorite! It is so creamy, so light, banana-ey and so ooey-gooey at the same time! Until recently, I never imagined that I could ever make this myself.
If you look at a slice of this pie, you would see why I thought this was out of my league, why I thought I would never be able to make this at home. This dessert is made of multiple layers and that makes it look very complicated. Since I am myself learning baking and cooking, this seemed like too much to bite in one go, if you know what I mean! I thought that there would be multiple steps in making this and some complicated baking procedure with some hard to get ingredients. I couldn’t have been more wrong! There is just no baking involved in this. Yes! You do not need an oven for this. Secondly, the recipe is so simple and involves such little actual work!
So without further ado, let’s get started!
I hope you enjoyed my recipe! I hope you love it as much as I do. If you have any questions regarding the recipe, feel free to ask!
Till next time…
