Banoffee pie is one of my favorite desserts. It is not too sweet and the sweetness of the banana melts in your mouth. Â You can make one pie for sharing, but it is also a good idea to make individual pies as well. It is a wonderful dessert and it is good with coffee or tea too.
300g can sweet condensed milk
250g plain flour, sifted
110g unsalted butter, chilled
110g pure icing sugar
1 egg yolk
3 small bananas
1/2 lemon, juiced
300ml thick cream
2 tablespoons grated chocolate
Submerge the can of condensed milk in a large saucepan of cold water over high heat. Let the water boil. After, reduce the heat and let it simmer for at least 3 hours. Add water as needed. Let the can cool and then refrigerate.
Next prepare the pastry y combining the butter, icing and flour in a food processor or electric mixer. Mix it until all the ingredients are well combined. Add the egg yolk and 2 tablespoons of cold water. Mix until you form a ball of dough. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven at 190C.
Place the dough on a floured surface and roll it out using a rolling pin. Cut it into 8 pieces and place the dough in 8 individual pans. Chill it for 15 minutes and then line the dough with baking paper. Fill it with uncooked rice. Bake the crust for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let it cool. Discard the rice and the baking paper.
Open the refrigerated condensed milk and pour a little onto the crusts. Smooth the top and place some bananas (sliced). Squeeze some lemon juice and then add some more condensed milk (toffee). Top with whipped cream and then bananas. Sprinkle with chocolate. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
