Easy Banoffee Pie Recipe


This is one of the recipe which i wanted to try for quite a long time. Finally i made it few days back and it was a super hit.

The main thing which you need for this is the dulce de leche, i used homemade ones for this. Ofcourse you can use store bought ones if you can find it. But it is more easy to make it at home. Check this post for the recipe..

  1. Hi aarthi, this just looks amazing! I'm in love with your blog, you make any recipe look at ease thanks to your wonderful pictorials :) I'm def going to try this out soon! Just wondering, since I'm new to chennai.. I'm looking to buy an oven (your chocoflan makes me want to get one) which oven are you using? I've had a look at a few but none have a preheat mode. Could you please help? I'm pushing my hubby to get me one by christmas. Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers :)

  4. @Anonymousyes u can use any biscuits u like and when you press them on the pan, just press them gently and dont over press them, it may make them hard.

  5. Hi, I'd like to know of we can use whipping cream for this? Or does it have to be fresh cream only. Thanks Minakshi.
    P.s. this is my 2nd message. Hoping for a reply this time.

  6. Hi Aarthi, thanks for the revert. Trying to make it today and I have used Puck whipping cream. I'm using a morphy Richards electric hand blender but the cream isn't becoming stiff and fluffy. What could've gone wrong?
    Thanks

  8. Hi aarthi, I must say am a big fan of yours. I have tried many of ur recipes and they have come out so well and the taste is amazing. I am interested in making this was just wondering if using caramel carnation by nestle would also do? Is caramel and dulce de leche the same?

  9. Hi, thanks so much. Tried the method suggested by you to get fluffy and light cream for the pie. And it was so good even with the stick blender,which I was doubting.
    Thanks again and I've made the banoffee pie twice in 2 days. It's such a hit with my family.
