I tried my first Banoffee Pie as a teen and loved it immediately, mum had found the recipe and made it for a summer pudding, needless to say the plate was licked clean and it became a family favourite … actually it still is and luckily these days you can buy the caramel already to use in a tin whereas back in the day you had to boil condensed tins of milk for three hours.
I did that once for my kids in Italy, I got mum to send over tins of condensed milk so I could boil them and make the kids a Banoffee Pie, the things you do eh?
This is a great family dessert that will have everyone licking their lips, based on the infamous Banoffee Pie which I practically grew up on only with a couple of changes it becomes a lip smacking, sugar rush cheesecake.
Yeah, I know it’s most likely not calorie counting friendly and I know it encourages a sweet tooth but every now and then you got to let your hair down right?
I also think this dessert works well at any time of year. It’s simple to make and can be made in advance as it needs time in the fridge to set. So a good all timer that can be knocked up economically and easily, perfect dessert I’d say.
