Not everyone has a sweet tooth, that much is true. But even if you’re someone who can shrug at sweets, there are certain things that you’ll probably make an exception for because they’re just so darn good.
Banoffee pie is one of those things.
What’s banoffee pie, you ask? Well, prepare to be dazzled, both by its taste and how easy it is to make. In fact, it’s so dazzling that it was declared the winner of the 2016 LittleThings pie contest. That’s right. We have pie contests.
Banoffee pie is a no-bake pie that combines the deliciously weird crunch of toffee with the natural sweetness of banana, plus a lot of whipped cream. And it goes great with a cup of coffee.
And the recipe, which you’ll find below, will also give you a crash course on how to make toffee, which is a lot easier than you might think and comes in handy for other recipes, like these butterscotch toffee pudding pops.
Check out the very easy recipe below, which combines easy-to-find ingredients that everyone loves, just in a new way!
Plus, “banoffee” is a lot of fun to say.
