English Banoffee Pie

Posted on | August 27, 2012 | 13 Comments

The English Banana and Toffee Pie aka the Banoffee Pie.

I recently discovered Dulce de Leche, a delicious caramel sauce made from condensed milk. It is very popular in Latin America. Dulce de leche is easy to make contrary to what I thought and the result is astounding. It is true what is being said about it that it is even better than caramel. Now you combine this rich and delicious caramel sauce with a Graham Cracker crust, bananas, whipped cream and sprinkle chocolate on top. This is an irresistible dessert… And so simple to make…  

English Banoffee Pie


  • 1 1/2 cups / 190 g graham crackers crumbs
  • 6 tbsp / 85 g unsalted butter
  • 3 bananas
  • 1 can (14 oz) dulce de leche / toffee (Homemade Dulche de Leche made from condensed milk)
  • 2 cups / 475 ml whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • dark or milk chocolate


For the graham cracker crust, add the graham cracker crumbs into a bowl. Melt the butter and pour it into the bowl as well. Combine the two ingredients with a fork until it becomes a moistened mix. Pour the mixture into a pie pan and press it into the form to make a crust. Bake the crust at 350°F / 175°C for 10 minutes. Take it out and set it aside.

Slice the bananas and place them in the crust.

Then stir the dulce de leche and pour it over the bananas.

Pour the whipping cream into a bowl and add the vanilla extract and sugar. Beat it with an electric mixer until it becomes whipped cream. Spoon it on top of the dulce de leche.

Grate a little chocolate and sprinkle it over the pie.

Cool the pie in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

Guten Appetit!

    I’ve never made (or eaten!) a banana pie before, but this would be my first choice! It looks amazing! The toffee added sounds so brilliantly delicious! I must try this!

    Deeeeeeeeeeeelicious! I didn’t know Banoffee Pie means Banana Toffie Pie! Obviously you can tell I’m not a baker. =P It looks amazing though. I rarely see this kind of pie (or I don’t notice at bakeries or restaurants), so it must be very special when you get to eat homemade version of this. Looks YUM!!

    @ Annie: I have tried banana tartlets before but this was my first banana pie. And I loved it. This pie is definitely worth a try. Thank you for commenting!

    @ My Italian Smörgåsbord: I admit I was a bit unsure about the banana in this pie at first but for no reason. It was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, I haven’t set up the email subscription yet or if it is I am unaware of it. I have to work on that… Thank you for your interest…

    @ Nami: It was indeed very delicious. I haven’t heard of this pie before I made the dulce de leche and that intrigued me even more to try it. :-) Thanks for commenting!
