The Ultimate Banoffee Pie
With the fantastic combination of banana, dulce de leche and chocolate oaty biscuits this banoffee pie is hard to beat!  Truly delicious and very easy to make!!
Serves 16
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Chilling time: 2 hours
Ingredients
400g dark chocolate oat biscuits (I used dark chocolate hobnobs)
100g butter, melted
4 overripe bananas, sliced
450g jar of Dulce de Leche
500ml double cream
50g milk chocolate, melted
Method
1.          To make the biscuit base, whizz the biscuits in a food processor.  Add the melted butter and whizz again and then tip the buttery crumbs into a 25cm fluted tart tin.  Use the back of a spoon the biscuit into the tin and up the sides until the whole case is lined.  Chill the base in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
2.          Now line the biscuit base evenly with sliced bananas and then tip nearly all of the Dulce de Leche (leaving some left for the topping).  Spread the caramel over the banana layer and place back in the fridge for at least one hour.
3.          For the topping whisk the cream until it just holds its shape and then top the tart.  Now drizzle over the melted chocolate and remaining Dulce de Leche, gently mix through with a fork to create a ripple effect and serve.  Enjoy!

·         Dulce de leche is a traditional Latin American jam made from milk and sugar. It is gluten free, palm oil free and has 30% less calories than other cocoa spreads. It is perfect to enjoy with fruit, waffles, crepes, puddings, toast, yogurt and all kinds of desserts.
·         Dulce De Leche Márdel is available at Sainsburys.

Walnut Crusted Chicken Breast – It’s all About the Nut Glue

I almost never order a nut-crusted entrée in a restaurant, since they usually use a sugary glaze to hold them on, and/or feature a too sweet nut, like pecan, or macadamia. That’s not an issue here; since we’re going with buttery, subtly bitter walnuts, held on with a very savory […]

5-Minute Fisherman’s Stew – Give or Take

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]

Pear Clafoutis – Almost as Good as it Looks

It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]

Bloody Mary Burrata – An Experiment in Liquefying Salads

I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]

Chef John is On Vacation and More
