Scrumptious Wednesday {Banoffee Pie}

recipe via

My dad used to visit England once or twice a year for work. One of his favorite foods he would rave about over there is Banoffee pie. My dad is a fabulous chef and loves to try new recipes. A while back he stumbled upon this fabulous recipe for his favorite banoffee pie. He has adapted it a little over the times he has made it but it always turns out incredible. Bananas, toffee and whip cream? How could you go wrong? He made it for our Christmas Eve celebrations this year so I thought I would share the recipe. ..

Ingredients

For biscuit base:
 2 1/4 cups crushed graham cracker (pulse in food processor)
 1/2 cup melted butter
 3 tbsp sugar

For toffee filling:
 1/2 cup melted butter
 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
 2 tsp vanilla extract
 1 10 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Banana cream topping:
 2 cups whipping cream
 3 tbsp icing sugar
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 4 ripe bananas, sliced

Directions

For biscuit base:
Mix together ingredients for the biscuit base. Press into the bottom and sides of a lightly greased 9 inch spring form pan, about an inch and a half up the sides of the pan will do. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in the pan on a wire rack.

For Toffee Filling: 
In a small saucepan combine melted butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Bring to a slow boil until foamy, then add condensed milk. Bring back to a slow boil over medium low heat. and cook stiffen continuously for another 3 to 4 minutes until the mixture darkens slightly. Remove from heat and pour into the prepared cookie crumb crust. Chill for 2 hours or more until thoroughly cooled.

For banana cream topping:
Add whipping cream, icing sugar and vanilla extract to the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat together until soft peaks form, then gently fold in bananas.

Spread the banana cream topping over the toffee filling and garnish the top of the pie with chocolate shavings if desired. Chill for about another hour before serving.
