If you are looking for a unique and delcious dessert for your holiday celebrations or party, I’ve got the ticket for you, and it’s EASSSSY!  Before you click away because the title just sounds too odd…trust me, it’s delicious. There are so many amazing elements to this pie, that it’s just quite simply a showstopper. This Banana Toffee Pie Recipe is also called Banoffee pie, but I thought that just sounded too strange (and coffee-like, which I don’t drink), and I decided to simplify the title for my version of the recipe. It’s filled with luscious caramel on the inside, with a delightful whipped cream on top.

Apparently Banoffee Pie a thing in England…like a famous recipe made a different way (and even has a history on wikipedia). I’d never heard of it before, and when my friend Heather brought it to a gathering recently, it didn’t necessarily scream, “EAT ME” just from the looks of it. But I wanted to give it a try, especially when she detailed all the yummy ingredients. One bite, and I was HOOKED!

Heather told me about the recipe for Banoffee Pie she found at Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. I mean, I’d heard of the gal…fellow blogger and all, but my friend says she loves and trusts all of her recipes, and I’m like…”Hmmm, interesting.” I’d since heard another friend say the same thing about Mel’s Kitchen Cafe, and I’m like “WOW, must check out her recipes.” When I made the pie myself about a week later, I changed up the recipe a bit to my liking, but used hers as a base.

Here are the ingredients at a glance:

Now, Mel used standard Oreo’s as her pie base, and I did the same. Traditional banoffee pie’s, I learned, often have a graham cracker or Nilla wafer type crust. Those sound delicious, too. Also, in other pies, the “offee” is for toffee (not coffee), which is often the filling. Mel went the extra step adding toffee bits on top, which I do not disapprove.  I had a hard time finding the chocolate covered toffee bits in my reg. store baking aisle, but Wal-Mart saved the day. Also, instead of using several elements to make the caramel type toffee middle layer, you can simply purchase the dulce de leche can in the baking aisle (see can above).

I also used heavy whipping cream to make the delicious whipped cream topping. In the past few years, we’ve preferred making our own whipping cream, it’s so much more creamy and delicious than the pre made freezer stuff.

I actually collaborated with Shamrock Farms premium Heavy Whipping Cream for this post, and I wanted to share a few fun facts about their product:

  • Shamrock Farms premium Heavy Whipping Cream is preferred by chefs for everything from rich sauces to decadent dressings, and is ideal for whipping as the higher butterfat leads to stronger peaks and longer hold times.
  • Shamrock Farms creams have a reputation for being rich and creamy because they’re made with real dairy from cows never treated with the growth hormone rBST.
  • Shamrock Farms creams lineup includes traditional half and half – with zero trans-fat and Shamrock Farms heavy cream, both with an easy to use flip top cap.

Just FYI, it’s best eaten the same day, due to the fresh nature of the bananas, but I finished my pie off for breakfast 2 days after I made it, and it was still just as delicious as it was the first day.
