Banofee pie in a glass for Sweet Punch January 2012

To start this new year with a Sweet Punch, our team has selected Banofee Pie from Swapna's Cuisine. Banofee Pie is a traditional English dessert, made with pastry or crumbled biscuit base, topped with toffee, bananas and cream, layers and  layers of yumminess.  The layer which I loved the most in this dessert is toffee or  dulce de leche, I would even love to dulce de leche just as a dessert on it's own, straight from the can, well who  wouldn't  ; )


 I have made  a very few changes to this recipe, instead of serving it in a pie form, I served it in glasses.  A large portion of pie would be too much for two of us.  The other change is , unfortunately the cream was out of stock when I went for shopping, so I ended up making pastry cream, which tasted still good.  For  pastry cream recipe, please refer here.  Also one good thing about serving it in a glass is it doesn't require any setting time, it can be served immediately once made.  Thank you Swapna for giving us this yummy dessert.

Serves 2
Preparation Time: 20- 25 minutes

Ingredients:
Digestive biscuits-  5
Cocoa powder- 2 tsp
Butter- 1/2 tbsp
Condensed milk- 1 can
Banana- 1 sliced and mixed with a tsp pf lemon juice ( to avoid discolouration )
Pastry cream- 2 tbsp
Extra cocoa powder to dust it on top

Method:
Place the condensed milk in a large pan of water, the can should be completely immersed in water.  Once the water starts boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer for two hours.  In the middle check the water level, if it's reduced fill it to immerse the can completely.  Remove the can from water bath and let it cool down.  Once cooled down, when you open the can, you have the irresistible dulce de leche which can be used for the recipe.
Place the biscuits inside a freezer bag and mash it with a masher or rolling pin until it looks coarse crumbs. Mix the mashed biscuits and cocoa powder in a bowl, melt the butter and pour it on top of the biscuits and mix it well.  Take two serving glasses, divide the biscuits equally between two glasses.  Top it up with slices of banana, then dulce de leche and finally cream.  Dust it  on top with cocoa powder and serve.

It is an English dessert and your present also gives the English, British feel with the light blue floral napkin in the back ground.

Yummy dessert and I too can eat the Dulce De Leche off the can... mmmm heavenly..

This looks delicious. I think you took up the challenge and handled it brilliantly. I love the individual servings over a full pie as well. And, saying dulce de leche is a sure way to get me to give it a try. Many thanks for sharing.
