Bake of the Week: No Bake Banoffee Pie

This banoffee pie recipe is so simple I almost feel like I'm insulting you by posting it and the fact there's no baking involved means this is a cheeky little addition to the Bake of the Week series.

This is definitely a cheat - no part of this pie was homemade. If you wanted it to be, you could bake the digestive biscuits yourself and create the caramel topping by boiling condensed milk.

You will need

  • A food processor
  • 9 inch loose bottomed tin

  • 250g digestive biscuits
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 1 tin Carnation Caramel
  • 3 small bananas 
  • 1 pot double cream (I think mine was 284ml)
  • Chocolate to decorate.


1. Place the biscuits in a food processor and whizz until they resemble bread crumbs. When you have the breadcrumb texture, tip into a bowl, add the melted butter and mix until it begins to combine. 

2. Spoon the biscuit mixture into the tin and press along the bottom and slightly up the sides to create your pie shell. You can leave this to chill for around 30 minutes to one hour if you wish.

3. Spread the tinned caramel onto the base, avoiding mixing it too much. If you 'warm' it too much it'll start to thin. Again set this aside in the fridge until you're nearly ready to serve.

4. Chop up your bananas and apply on top of the caramel. Whip the double cream up with a little icing sugar and spoon over the banana. You can apply the cream in peaks if you wish, I opted to keep it flat.

5. Sprinkle with chocolate to decorate. I used the crumbs from a flake. I would have used the flake but well... I ate it.

6. Return to the fridge until ready to serve. 

As I said, this is definitely the cheats version but it's perfect for whipping up in a hurry if you've got unexpected guests or plans - if your boyfriends parents are coming for example, domestic Goddess bonus points!

As always, I'd love to see pictures if you give this a go, or hear your thoughts.
