English Mini Banoffee Pies – Englische Mini-Bananen-Karamell-Pies

Posted on | July 19, 2013 | 5 Comments

First of all, I am happy to be back online again. My hosting service decided to migrate my page to a new server. I was told in an email that I should start noticing improvements and that my visitors are really going to appreciate it… Well, I wish that would’ve been the case. The result of this migration was that my page was down for 3 days. First I thought it was only temporary but unfortunately, it wasn’t. After contacting technical support several times, the issue was finally fixed. So after 3 long agonizing days my page is finally back up.  Yeah!!!

And now about this recipe, this pie is incredibly delicious and easy as pie to make. Imagine the combination of dulce de leche with bananas, whipped cream, and a graham-cracker crust… It’s to die for. I have made this pie several times before and the only possible improvement I could think of was to individualize the dessert by making mini pies. Of course, these pies could be made a bit healthier but every now and then, I leave recipes unchanged because they are just too good… :-)

English Mini Banoffee Pies

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups / 190 g graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tbsp / 85 g unsalted butter
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 1 can (14 oz) dulce de leche / toffee (homemade dulce de leche)
  • 2 cups / 475 ml whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • grated milk or dark chocolate

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F / 175°C.

For the graham cracker crust, place the graham crackers in a bowl. Melt the butter and pour it over the graham crackers. Combine the two ingredients with a fork until it resembles moist sand. Divide the mixture into your choice of small oven-proof dishes such as ramekins. Gently press the crumbs into the dishes to make the crust. Bake the crust for about 7-10 minutes. Take the dishes out and let them cool.

Place the bananas slices on top of the crust. 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 stiff. Spoon it on top of the dulce de leche. Sprinkle a little bit of grated chocolate over the mini pies.

Cool in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Guten Appetit!

Recipe from Baltic Maid

Englische Banoffee-Mini-Pies (Bananen-Karamell-Mini-Pies)

Zutaten

  • 190 g Graham-Cracker-Krümel
  • 85 g / 6 EL ungesalzene Butter
  • 3 Bananen, in Scheiben geschnitten
  • 1 Dose (ca. 400 g) Karamellsauce / Dulce de Leche / Toffee (Rezept für selbstgemachte Dulce de Leche)
  • 475 ml Schlagsahne
  • 1 TL Vanilleextrakt
  • 1 EL Zucker
  • geraspelte Milch- oder dunkle Schokolade

Zubereitung

Den Backofen auf 350°F / 175°C vorheizen.

Die Graham-Cracker-Krümel für den Pie-boden/-crust in eine Schüssel geben. Die Butter schmelzen und über die Krümel giessen. Die beiden Zutaten mit einer Gabel vermischen bis die Masse nassem Sand gleicht. Die Krümelmasse auf mehrere ofenfeste Schalen, z.B. Ramekins, verteilen und ein wenig andrücken, um die Böden zu formen. Die Backförmchen für 7-10 Minuten im Backofen backen. Die Backformen aus dem Ofen nehmen und abkühlen lassen.

Die Bananenscheiben auf die Schalen verteilen. Die Dulce de Leche Sauce umrühren und auf die Bananenscheiben geben.

Die Schlagsahne mit dem Vanilleextrakt und dem Zucker vermischen und mit einem Mixer steif schlagen. Die Sahne in die Formen geben und mit geraspelter Schokolade bestreuen.

Die Banoffee-Pies mindestens für eine Stunde in den Kühlschrank stellen. Guten Appetit!

    I love desserts with dulce de leche! This one looks absolutely wonderful with all those pretty layers! I like to make my own dulce de leche (using boiling method), and I see you like to make your own too (by crock pot method)!

    Hi again! What can I say? I’m just a bad blog reader.

    This looks sooo good! I like your German translation for graham crackers crumbs. Are you just assuming that we make them homemade since graham crackers don’t exist here? ;)

    So I’m going through your stuff now, and starting on the third page, when you click on “keep reading” the url comes up as this:

    http://www.balticmaid.com/page3/page/4/

    It’s the same on page 4 and I’m guessing on further pages.

    And you need a Pin-it button somewhere! I had to change browsers (to the one with the pin it tool thingie) so I can pin all your stuff. :)

    And if you want people to pin your pictures, it’d be good to add an alt text. Just because right now the text that comes up is the image file name. Just some ideas to make pinning easier. ;)

    Going through the rest of your stuff now! :D

    @ Katarina: Thank you!

    @ Julia: Thank you. I agree dulce de leche desserts are amaing!
    I have never tried the boiling method before. I am curious to give it a try. However, I do like the crockpot method because I don’t need to pay attention to it and I can just forget about it.

    @ Erin: hahaha… I thought about the translation for quite a bit but basically, you are in trouble if you want graham crackers in Germany…
    I am not sure what’s going on with the page trouble. This doesn’t happen to me though. I should check this out on different computers. Either way I have no idea why this would happen though. Thank for letting me know. I appreciate it.
    I really need to add the pin button and thanks for the alt text tip. I have seen people pin my posts with the image file name and I was wondering how to change this. I need to figure out how first… :-P
    Thanks for your help… Much appreciated :-)
