Banoffi Pie

Dear Foodies,

This is one of the simplest of desserts I've ever made those days. One of the sweeetest, too! I still remember trying out the recipe for the first time in Bristol. Ah! One will always remember one's first time falling in love. It's sweet when one's in love but then........Ouch! the heartache.......

8 oz butter
6 oz digestive biscuits (crushed)
6 oz caster sugar (reduce sugar if too sweet)
1 can condensed milk (small can)
2 bananas (sliced)

Melt 3 oz butter.
Stir in crushed biscuits.
Press into base and sides of a springform pan (8 inches/20 cm) (loose-bottomed for easy disassembly)
Heat remaining butter and sugar in an until melted.
Add condensed milk.
Stirring continuously.
Bring to a gentle boil for 5 minutes to make light golden caramel.
Pour this dulce de leche over biscuit base and allow to cool.
Arrange sliced bananas on top.
Serve with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Hey Presto! Sweets for my sweet! 

Alternatively, you can boil the condensed milk can (whole, unopened) in water for 3 hours to make the dulce de leche. But I think this method is too time-consuming...........and energy-consuming too! Save energy & the environment!

Not for those who count calories! Again, photo is googled. I will post original photo when I get to make this sweetlicious dessert.
