Ingredients for Banoffee Pie

Crust – A homemade graham crust is recommended, as store-bought crusts often don’t hold up to toppings or break apart when serving. Graham crumbs can be replaced with almost any type of cookie crumbs; try Biscoff or Nutter Butter cookies.

Bananas – Save the ripe bananas for banana bread; firm, and fresh bananas are best for this recipe.

Toffee – Be sure to use dulce de leche, which is made with milk and sugar (caramel is water and sugar). You can also find dulce de leche online. Boiling it a little bit helps it to thicken so the pie sets a little bit better.

Variations – Add sliced strawberries between the bananas or even mini chocolate chips. Drizzle extra dulce de leche or hot fudge sauce over the top for a fancy presentation.

  3. Layer sliced bananas over the caramel and top with whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired.

Storing Banoffee Pie

Banoffee pie is best eaten the day of or the day after you make it when the bananas are still fresh and firm. Banoffee pie can be made a day in advance, just cover it and keep it chilled until ready to serve. Due to the bananas and whipped cream, it’s not advised to freeze Banoffee pie.

    1. That should work well. When making this recipe we recommend you refrigerate it for 2-3 hours, so overnight should work well too.

  1. This is also good with pineapple chunks instead of bananas but needs to be eaten immediately.
    If you first put a thin layer of hot fudge (don’t heat up, spread on top of graham cracker crust) then add bananas and caramel, chill and top with whip cream – yummy!

  2. The La Lechera Dulce de Leche was thick and a little hard to spread. Can you put in microwave to soften a little? Are would it be to runny? Thanks

    1. Hi, Gayle.

      I just made this tonight with La Lechera Dulce. I emptied the can into a microwave safe bowl and cooked it on high in 30 second increments until it became more pliable.

      I then dropped it by tablespoons onto the bananas and used a small offset spatula to spread it all out. It was perfect. I then put it in the fridge to chill a bit before topping with fresh whipped cream.

  3. Wowza! This is over-the-top, and I really, really want a slice! And seconds and thirds! I’m so happy I have a few cans of the condensed milk in my pantry.
