Banoffee pie is an English dessert that has been around for years!  I actually learned about this yummy concoction from my sister!

What is Banoffee Pie?

Banana + Toffee = Banoffee!  Banoffee pie starts with a pie crust filled with fresh banana slices.  The slices are topped with a delicious caramely dulce de leche (which I make from sweetened condensed milk) and finally freshly whipped cream.

This pie is best eaten the day of or the day after you make it.  Because of the fresh bananas, it doesn’t last very long in the fridge and it doesn’t freeze well.

It’s really easy to make, no baking required!  The dulce de leche in this recipe is made by creating caramel out of sweetened condensed milk (I always use Eagle Brand). I used to boil the can but I now make it without boiling or substitute store bought dulce de leche. To make the caramel I pour condensed milk into a pie pan or casserole dish.  Cover it with foil and place it in a larger pan of water and bake.

If you do choose to boil your sweetened condensed milk,  it is VERY important that the can is covered with water the whole time so you will need to keep an eye on it and top up the pot.  You’ll also want to make sure it’s completely cooled before opening the can.

I use a graham pie crust in this recipe because I love the flavor of graham with banana & caramel but you can most definitely use a traditional baked pastry pie shell!

  1. I have always wanted to make this! It’s such a great combination of flavors!5 stars

  2. This is one of my favourite indulgent desserts, but I never think to make it. I have to give it a try!5 stars

    1. You could try it with raspberries or strawberries. I’ve never tried it, so let us know if you do Judy!


  3. Boiled the sweetened condensed milk exactly as instructed. Kept the water topped off so can was always completely submerged in water. Opened the can about 5 minutes after taking it out of the boiling water. The sweetened condensed milk was horrible. It had like a pudding consistency. Very thick and lumpy. Smelled terrible and tasted burnt. What happened? How did this go wrong?

    1. Yes, it does have a pudding consistency, it’s more like a dulce de leche flavor and consistency. It should be thick to keep the pie from being too runny.

  4. Omg. When I was a young teenager my friends grandma made this and it was the best dessert I’ve ever had in my entire life to this day. I’ve been searching for this recipe ever since… And now I’ve finally found it! Thank you so much for posting this! It’s seriously been a good 15 years looking for this recipe!

  5. Oh my goodness, I made this pie yesterday and it is so good I have another can of sweetened condensed milk boiling as I type. My pie went a little runny, I’m not sure why it would have done that, but it was so good no one cared that it was soupy. Thanks for the delicious recipe! . I had not heard of this delightful bit of mouth watering goodness before, I am so happy I came across this recipe.

  6. I alway put the dulce the leche underneath the bananas. Makes for a more even spread and also top off the whipped cream with shaved chocolate… And I always make cook more than one can of condensed milk at a time. You can keep them for a year and only have to heat them slighty to use in a next banoffee pie or another recipe.

    1. I’ve seen it (although it isn’t available everywhere) but I haven’t tried it. The only thing I would be concerned about is that it isn’t thick enough to stand up on it’s own. It would still taste great but might be a little runny.

  7. Grat recipes! For the dulce de leche: I boil it in a pressure cooker and it only takes 1 hour. It saves a lot of electricity and time. I cover the cans that fit loosely in the bottom of the cooker with water( the extra ones I keep unopened in the refrigerator for other deserts). Close it very tight and start with high heat. When it starts to boil I lower it to med-low just to hear them dancing a little bit inside the pot. I start counting the hour when they start to boil. Stir the dulce de leche inside the can or in a bowl before using it.

  8. I love these recipes and I would like to have more on how to make a right make a baby cake for a baby shower or like a stomach with the poops if you got any suggestions give me out please I love cooking That I have a cake made by May 8 for a baby shower

    1. I have baked a cake in a bowl before to get a round shape (for a ball), so that would probably work for your baby belly too! :) Hope that helps!

  9. This looks SO good! Banoffee Pie sounds like my kind of dessert!
    I love homemade dulce de leche! So easy and makes great little gifts too :)

  10. One absolutely gorgeous pie! Must try this. (Yay for the English and glad your sister tipped you off!)

    1. I also would like to know what dulce de leche our is. In place – how do we get the caramel? What amount do we mix caramel with the condensed milk to get that sauce?

  11. You can also cook the sweetened condensed milk in a small crock pot. Stir it every couple of hours. I like this method better than boiling it because it seems less dangerous and I don’t have to fight my stainless steel afterwards to get it clean!
    I’m going to be making this pie as soon as I get some bananas!
