Banoffee Pie

14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 c. graham cracker crumbs (about two packs out of 3)
½ c. unsalted butter, melted
4 ripe bananas
2 c. heavy cream
¼ c. powdered sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon
2 oz. bittersweet chocolate

Take label off can and put in a pan of water that covers the can by a few inches. Keeping the water at that level boil can for three hours, turning the can a bit with tongs. Remove from pan and let rest for at least 30 minutes. Carefully open the can.

Add melted butter to the crumbs in the processor and pulse until it sticks together. Press into 9 in. spring form pan using a one cup measure. Chill to set.

Pour on caramel over cracker base. Spread evenly.
Slice bananas over the caramel evenly. Whip cream with sugar and cinnamon and whip until firm. Top with chocolate and refrigerate until service.


  1. Is it cheating to melt caramel candies in place of the sweetened condensed milk, or will they harden to 'breaking your molars' stage?

  2. I'm off to market to get cracker crumbs! Hubby is golfing for Father's Day so this will be his surprise when he gets home!


I'd love to hear if you made any of these recipes. And if you have specific requests or questions, please email me at
